Festival Module for Speakup

OK, just two questions:
1. Was this developed using speakup 1.00 stable or the CVS releases? I'm 
hoping the CVS release, as I use kernel 2.4.20 and really want to try this 
thing out as I'm not sure how much longer my HW synth's going to last.
2. What, exactly, is the festival daemon? I've got festival installed here, 
but I don't see any sort of daemon, just the main program, as well as a 
client program. Is the daemon the festival server (what you get when you 
launch festival with the --server option)?
