Script to remove subtitles from mkv using mkvmerge available?

As the title states, is there a post-processing script available somewhere that allows users to strip embedded subtitles from a set language before moving the file to it's final folder? This can be done manually with mkvmerge, but ofcourse it would be better if sabnzbd could do this itself. This happens more and more with 720p TV shows, and I'd rather not have it. I wouldn't be able to write such a thing myself, my knowledge lacks too much for that. So maybe there's alraedy something like this, or someone's up for (helping me) making such a script?


PS: Documentation: mkvmerge cmd instructions

Serious question: why would you ever want to remove subtitles? They literally take up like 0.01% of the filesize. I can't think of a single reason to remove them even if it took no effort at all, nevermind wasting time running programs and scripts to strip them out.
