personalities and voice fonts

Here is how it works.

0) All the new voice lock voices use ACSS.

1) For each variation e.g. voice-bolden,
there is a corresponding voice-bolden-settings 
and that is what you should be customizing 
2) You may need to reload packages that have already been loaded for
some of these to take effect.

voice-bolden in my environment is a variable whose value is 
the corresponding voice-bolden-settings is 
(nil 1 6 6 nil)
