I keep the 'short title' in Title and put the subtitle into a Strapline/#strapline custom column. I have Add set up to take the Author and Title from the file name. Prior to importing I separate the Title and Strapline with a '#', and then use Bulk Metadata Edit Search and Replace to move what's after the '#' to the custom column.

My custom column is same type as theducks, Text, column shown in Tag browser, and I hide it in the Tag browser.

My understanding is that the next release of calibre (maybe as soon as today) will have provision for the equivalent of a 'Text, column not shown in Tag Browser' column type. I intend moving my existing Strapline column into one of those - I'll have to figure out how to put the comma separated bits back together again
