XelaG is an unknown quantity at this point

I have encountered quite a few cases of 4, 5 or more lines (up to 10 in one case, which was very ugly!). This happens regularly in Japanese anime movies. Not only BSPlayer does not show them, but when editing the SRT file in the subtitle editor the extra lines get removed without a warning, so I first have to check the whole SRT file visually with notepad, which is a pain. Whether it is good or bad practice to have more than 3 lines is in my opinion not very relevant: SubRip correctly produces them without limiting the number of lines.

So in my opinion it would be good if:

1) in the subtitle editor - if lines get chopped off, to add a warning at the relevant line (and a general warning so that one does not overwrite the original)

2) preferably, not to remove lines in the editor.

3) similarly as (2), to allow BSPlayer to show all lines.
