Talkbox maintanance (was Re: unused bytes in config block)

Hello John,

It just crossed my mind that the .dirname.mp3 clip playback has to be
different if we want both the voice UI and talkbox at the same time. Remember that
we won't be able to have the UI "talk" if mp3 files are played, the
"voicefont" needs the mp3 buffer.

So to avoid the dirname and the voicefont trashing each other and therefore
a lot of disk traffic, the dirnames should be played from memory, too. The
voicefont must not occupy all of the mp3 buffer. The space behind could be used
to load the dirname, bitswap and play it. I think this is in fact less
intrusive to the normal mp3 playback. You don't have to attach the clip to
playlist or such.

In other words, when maintaining the patch you don't need to take care about
the actual playback, but just the file browser part.
