I thought about it again and One problem with starting from eflite is that
it does not support multiplel languages at this point which is the
main reason to try espeak in the first place. There is some facility
in eflite for supporting multiple voices but it is not used as far as
I can tell.

For Python, I like to use pyrex which is basically a way to write
Python C extensions in a language very similar to Python itself.
Things like reference counting are all taken care of automagically. It
is not part of the official python distribution though.
