:-)  There's always too much work to do, too few people to do it, and
not enough time.  :-(

That would be great!  As I mentioned before - we definitely appreciate
your work here.

I may be confused, but I thought the way we left it was that you were
going to work on a layer over SpeechDispatcher (very thin, since
SpeechDispathcher was going to do most of the work), and then
potentially do a layer over gnome-speech (thicker, since more higher
level logic is needed).  We should take this discussion off the larger
list, though, and try to work something out.  The refactoring needed
might get a bit sticky.

Thanks again for all your work and commitment,
