The emacspeak script is distributed with emacspeak.  Over here, it is
installed as /usr/bin/emacspeak.  It's not quite external.  I always
thought that this was the recommended way to launch.  I'm surprised to
hear otherwise.

I found an unrelated issue with the script today.  It contains the
following two lines:

EMACS_UNIBYTE=1
export EMACS_UNIBYTE

When I launch with that script, emacs prevents me from saving text as
UTF-8, unless I forcibly enable multibyte mode.

Is there any particular reason why emacspeak still needs emacs to run in
unibyte mode?
