#587 Enable loading voice definitions from arbitrary files

I use espeak/espeak-ng to synthesize vocals for songs. See / listen https://golubovsky.bandcamp.com/album/unhuman-voices Synthesizing vocals requires voice definitions very different from voices used for speech. Besides, many voice adjustments are needed in the process of song composition, and different voices needed for different parts of a song. Default location of voice files in an installed espeak is under /usr/lib... that is, area not writable by users which makes it very inconvenient to edit voice definition files "ad-hoc". The patch adds flag-option --load which makes the voice name provided with -v being treated as path to a file rather than just a voice name. Thanks.
