Making Speakup Optional

I have written a simple script to select a keymap based on whether Speakup
is running or not before.  What I did is to grep "none"
/proc/speakup/synth.  If it contains "none" I would execute "loadkeys -k."
This loads the default keymap.  I don't have this script handy, but I
recall that it went something like:

grep "none" /proc/speakup/synth >/dev/null 2>&1
if [ $? -eq 0 ] then
    loadkeys -k

I put this at the bottom of /etc/rc.d/rc.local on the machine in question.
Hope this helps.
