[Bug 12043] For better compatibility with .SRT, could the FULL STOP be replaced with a COMMA? So instead of 00:00:00.000 it would be 00:00:00,000

We used to support both "." and ",", but it was simplified to just "." when
WebVTT stopped being intentionally compatible with SRT because it turns out SRT
is way the heck more complicated than it appears to be. If it wasn't for SRT
there really would be no reason to support "," as far as I can tell; formats
like this usually use the US locale in their syntax.

foolip: do you want to add anything here? IIRC it was your idea to remove
support for ",".
