Should we use the emacspeak speech back-end system-wide in Vinux?



I'm having trouble with speech-dispatcher in Ubuntu Maverick.  I have
to login to Gnome to get it working.  The 0.7 version has basically
dropped support for global sources of sound, like speakup, so far as I
can tell.  I have to compile my own hacked up copy of speechd-up o get
any speech at all.

So, I am considering giving up on speech-dispatcher and seeing if
using the emacspeak back-end could be extended to work with speakup,
SBL, and yasr.  While I haven't tried it, I read that emacspeak
provides a superior back-end for Orca already.  I may be able to make
this the default back end for the upcoming Vinux release based on
Ubuntu Maverick.  Is this a good or a bad idea?  If switching to the
emacspeak back-end is desirable, what's the best way to get it working
with speakup and other tools?

Thanks,
Bill
