Subject: Re: new extension for talkbox directory clip: ".dirname.tbx"

I still think that the talkbox files should be elsewhere (say
\.rockbox\dirtalks), out of the way.

Seeing as we have to run a script on a PC to generate the files anyway, I
see no value in them being in the actual directories themselves - the script
can remove old ones, and create missing ones in one hit.

ps. Thanks for making them not .mp3 files - that was my main whine about
this talkbox stuff. Im very pleased to be able to navigate around my rockbox
when on my bike without talking it out of my pocket...
