This is planned and already prepared, you may have seen the talk_file()
function. You're welcome to maintain the talkbox patch, please use this function
for playback. It's not perfect yet, plays only 64kB, doesn't strip ID
headers. But we shoudn't use the normal file playback as this would trash our
voicefont in the (lower part of the) mp3 buffer, causing to reload it with any
"voiced" UI action, unnecessary lots of disk action then.

Yes, stay tuned. There is already a script available which walks the
directories and places a .dirname.mp3 clip in each one, using my "speak" TTS command
line tool. I've used it on my box, a very cool way to quickly get all
directories "voiced". No need for a special orginization.
