It'll be interesting to see how well that works.

Sadly, from the docs:

   As of 1.2 initial scripts have been added to aid the conversion of
   FestVox voices to Flite. In general the conversion cannot be automatic.
   For example all specific Scheme code written for a voice needs to be hand
   converted to C to work in Flite, this can be a major task.

I ain't got time for a major task like that. Wish I did, though!
