I haven't explored using FFmpeg for this purpose, but MP4Box can remux an SRT file into an existing MP4 asset. I'm a big fan of MP4Box. I used it on the WelcomeBC.ca site's Newcomers Guide to create the subtitled assets for iOS deployment and Flash desktop deployment.

Patch welcome, the alternative is to wait.
