I think the best idea would be to keep all of the dir.MP3 files in a
subfolder like Langs, or elsewhere in .rockbox, as this is a bothersome side
effect of the talkbox feature.
But it would also be no big deal to rename the MP3 to something else, if
that would be simpler in the long run.

Several people have asked if we should better use a different extension for
the current ".dirname.mp3" files, to avoid them getting treated like regular
mp3s in whatever actions.

I'd like to hear some opinions about it, whether this is too established
already, or if we can/should change it.

The Rockbox and TTS script part of it is quickly done. But existing users
will have to mass-rename their files, or re-generate them.

I don't like to move the clips out of their directories. It easily gets
inconsistant, if you move or delete directories. And this big index would
need to be searched.
