In short, I've created an implementation agnostic set of wrappers for

Sounds good to me. It was never very pleasant to have the randomness of
which backend the bonobo-activation query returned to give you the
speech driver; makes sense to codify at least that in a small shlib.
The backend that you get can be identified by name and invoked; it's not
very sophisticated (you can't query servers by capability yet, other
than by the presence of the 'Callbacks' API), but you can identify them
I don't think this is useful, since it's only C wrappers.
I've also rewritten the speech related code in gnopernicus to use
this new API, but I haven't attached that work yet, until the
community feel that this is a good thing to do.
Sounds like it'd be useful now; and good to get this into 2.6.
Freeze is still recommended for 'Desktop'. I certainly don't think we
should rush something like this into 2.6 since it doesn't provide any
new functionality - even if there's a strong feeling that it solves some
I know the API/ABI freeze for GNOME 2.5/6 has already happened, so
this is something we'd like to consider for GNOME 2.7/8.
Sure; but as Jeff says - that's not for your bit really, so ... if it's
ready, lets go for it.
