It prevents the loading of ~/.emacs, because that would get loaded
before any additional -l options.  So to guarantee that emacspeak-setup
is loaded before everything else, -q has to be used.  If you
look at the emacspeak launcher script, you'll notice that ~/.emacs is
added to the emacs startup command, as "-l ~/.emacs", but *after* the -l
for emacspeak-setup

It is necessary for the launcher script.

You can achieve the same thing by loading emacspeak-setup from
your .emacs, at the very beginning of the file.
