01- patch for subtitleoverlay

Two nights ago I went to an event hosted by a spanish academy where they
projected a spanish film at a pub. Since most of the people in the room are
learning spanish, they had english subtitles for educational purposes. And
since the venue wasn't designed for this (group of chairs in flat floor) most
people had their view of the bottom of the screen blocked. After some failed
starts somebody changed a setting in the video player to move the subtitles to
the top of the screen, and everybody could read them and was happy.

This made me think doing this in playbin is not possible. I don't think there
are any GStreamer players that offer this feature.

I attach a solution for this :)

(some people call it opera-style subtitles since the same solution has been
used in the opera)
