Adding a line break for each speaker change led to some crummy 
formatting due to the line breaks already embedded in the subtitles. 
But, I can go back the previous scheme that used a line break for 
speaker change and wrapping everywhere else.  Assuming that the new 
format is here to stay and not the tragic accident it appears to be, 
fewer and fewer programmes will have detectable speaker changes in 
subtitles, so either way is OK by me.  That's why I wanted people who 
have an interest in subtitles to sound off.
