Adds borkborkbork (aka Swedish Chef) as a language.

Also attached is a QnD perl script that I wrote - it calls an external programme to translate each dest string. Used the GNU Talk Filters ( to do the hard work. Most of the other filters didn't work very well with the short strings that rb uses.

I could not get this to work. Is it supposed to be changing the displayed text (.lang file), in which case the filesize seemed too large, or a spoken voice file (which would make more sense), in which case it should be .voice and I would expect the filesize to be much larger.
