Yes, but only for the strings which are truely voiced (reference is the
english.lang, if it's non-blank there). Otherwise you'll make your voice file
unnecessary large. We have problems to fit it already.

See above. It can be envisioned that some clever script reads the
english.lang in parallel, and only generates voice clips if there's an entry.
I see the problem of syncing it. Every time an existing entry gets newly
voiced, the other language files would have to follow this. A kind of "enable"
by the english file might be better.

You can "fool" it by renaming the voice file of your choice to the languge
you use. But I'm not going for independent selections.
