Re: Emacspeak phrase breaks

The choice is definitely up to them, and I am not going to
waste my breath or keystrokes 
arguing about this. At the same time, I definitely dont plan
to waste my time debugging someone else's closed software
--however I am definitely not planning to go on a religious
crusade to discourage others from doing so.

Incidentally, festival can use the voice from mbrola --and
the mbrola voice is the only thing good about the mbrola system.
