according to Matroska specification
SRT and SSA/ASS subtitles inside MKV container
should ALWAYs be treated as UTF-8.

But when my .mplayer/config contain


then this settings overrides UTF-8 default for MKV.

It would be nice to apply config's subcp= setting only to
standalone subtitles (srt files) and not for mkv content,
which should be strictly utf-8.

Maybe some new option like "forcesubcp" should be introduced
for really override MKV subtitle codepage.
