I'm not gunna rename NOVOICES -- it needs to be consistent with NOOPS, and
whichever way you do it its always going to have a problem with a double
negative.  I think its explained clearly enough in the SET help.

I've added CHANSERV::SET::NOVOICECMD which will disable use of the VOICE
command though.
