I agree with Philip. The parser shouldn't drocanianly drop cues for trivial
authoring mistakes. I don't know if we need to polish the parsing of the id
(though I don't mind that), but certainly the timestamp parsing needs
polishing. From what I remember when looking at SRT content, it's not uncommon
to have various mistakes in the timestamp. Usually you don't notice the error
(until you validate the file or check a browser's error console). The parsing
of timestamps should be DWIM (doesn't need to be compatible with SRT
implementations though).

1:01.000 = 01:01.000
01:1.000 = 01:01.000
01:01,000 = 01:01.000
01:01.5 = 01:01.500
01:01.5000 = 01:01.500
01:61.000 = 02:01.000
