Heh, yeah. I suggest using erc-insert-post-hook anyway. Thats what
erc-speak is using.  erc in CVS was quite heavily under reorganisation
recently. It should stabilize now.

I dont know what emacspeak-erc-my-nick is suppoed to do, but the
function (erc-current-nick) returns your nick.

I have to admit that I dont use emacspeak-erc.el. I prefer to hear
all people on a channel and ignore them through other means.

Maybe you should try erc-speak.el and tell me what it could do better.
As I use erc-speak myself, and am the maintainer of erc.el, erc-speak
is guaranteed to work with latest cvs version.

You said you use the debian sid package of erc, so trying erc-speak
is easy for you. Just put (require 'erc-speak) in your .emacs
(instead of (require 'erc) in case you have that already there)

Some erc-speak features:
smiley expansion, abbreviation expansion.
Queued talking, and voice-lock support for pals/fools/keyword highlighting
and so on.

We introduced alot of useful hooks in CVS version.
Maybe advices arent necessary (I am sure they aren't).

For any erc related problems, feel free to contact me. I am quite sure
I can come up with some helpful answers for you.
