There does not appear to be any such filtering option in winamp v2.9x -
just selection by extension. I haven't tried any of the higher version
numbers. Foobar also supports extension filtering, but ignores the '.'
prefix, AFAICT.

Is there any real reason *not* to change the extension of talkbox files,
though? It seems like a lot more work making everyone jump through hoops
to avoid loading or playing these in PC based applications - especially
since not all of them (including some very popular ones) offer that
capability.
