Ok sure.
Just when you hit select in the wps?
Or in the menus too?
Like when the voice talks anywhere should playback stop?
Or only in the file browser?
Stopping playback for the voice anywhere would probably be easiest since
we could just call a function in talk.c in all the functions there but it
may get messy if we start stopping playback for certain actions...
Then when should music start again?
Once the talking has finished? Or once the user returns to the wps?

Perhaps you could write up a description on the tracker of exactly what
you want and I'll see if I have time to look into this.
I think it would be best as a setting though since some people I think
like the faiding of the audio...
