Eric, I do not find the idea stupid per se but still I am wondering why
you want to reload another version when you no longer need Talkbox ? If
it is because it is not stable yet (pure guess, I have not tried it) or
because it always talks and you do not like it when you do not need it
(another pure guess) then the right solution is not to associate
different modules to different config files but (one) to "finish" the
Talkbox version or (two) to add the necessary Talkbox settings and save
them in the config file, no ?

In other worlds if your idea is essentially meant to fulfill a need for
us in the testers community I am not so sure it is so relevant.

Again, no offense intended to the Talkbox people, I have not tried it
(yet) and I am lazy enough right now to not go back through this
thread... 8-)

Cheers. Jean.
