Because this is pie-in-the-sky, versus for mp3 clips we have all the
mp3 clips from the buffer will take only minimum extra resources, some
slight changes to menu and screen code. A TTS engine is a whole lot different.

For this we can use talkbox, and you can generate the directory name clips
offline on a PC, using a text-to-speach script, if you like.

Hu? No, you can have clips down to 1 frame, which is in the milliseconds.
And latency is also no issue, either we have the clips in the mp3 buffer
(while not playing), or we don't.
