I can't believe I'm going to say this, but... no, it wouldn't.  Yes,
APNG is a much better project for animated PNGs in the web, but here's
why it's not the better solution in this case:

* There's no libapng that I know of, forcing libkate to include code
to work with APNG, or worse, force the developer to go and code a
whole libapng.  Neither is a good solution.

* It is my understanding that MNG is much easier to script for than
APNG, and on a subtitles case such as this one, scripting is of vital
