I've borrowed the term from the Creative Labs "soundfonts", that's how they
used to call their instrument sets for MIDI wavetables.

My thinking, I want to name it "english.voice". Have already done so here
internally, to be changed with the next commit.
One day this filename may be dynamically following the selected language, so
if you selected swedish and svenska.voice is present, it will automagically
use that one.
