Specify subtitle directory

mplayer can automatic use subtitles that are placed in the same folder as the movie. Many people don't have there subtitles in the same folder, but in stead in a sub directory, like ./subs/

I would like that mplayer developers implement a feature so it's possible to specify another directory for automatic use of subtitle. For example, ./subs that means it will look in the sub directory "subs" from the movie itself.
I guess it will be a command line option like -sub-directory that support comma separated paths or something.

This can then be used in a GUI like smplayer.

To give a more clear example of what my feature request is, I have taken a screenshot of my VLC application (0.9.8a) that can do this. See the option "subtitle autodetection paths" on this screenshot:
