Thanks for doing this!
Instead of repeating code, can you see a way of factoring out the common
code, and then have sd and opentts as small sub classes that contain the
diffrences between themselves?
Yes I do believe that if Orca cant make a connection to the speech engine,
then it will not be included in the list of available speech servers.
I would have to dig into code to be 100% sure though.

there. I don't have to have opentts already installed while I build

What I want to be sure of is if Jon, for example, is working on any
speech dispatcher stuff, I don't wanna bump heads with him. Is there
any pit-falls I should look out for? Under the new OpenTTS package,
the python directories for speechd and speechd_config will be changing
to opentts and opentts_config. My intent is to basically leave speech
dispatcher unchanged but add opentts as a new option. This way, both
modules will be supported for the time being until we figure out what
happens with Brailcom and/or the OpenTTS project.
There was a recent but pointed to that references speech dispatcher
stuff which I think will be used for any patches I supply unless it is
preferred we start with anew RFE.
Any advice welcomed.
