I've never liked having to use entities for < and >, that seems like a major
opportunity for error in converting srt or just creating the files in general,
so have some sympathy for <<, but using <> as an escape digraph doesn't seem
any better.

I mean, it would be a great idea if everyone creating captions was an expert,
but we have the opposite issue.

I would like to have a way to specify comments, and C-style is straightforward
to parse, but my first thought was that I would have found shell style '#' or
html-style '<!-- ... -->' comments more natural. Are there any of those in your
SRT corpus?
