No, the kernel driver wouldn't work with gnopernicus. There is a couple of
strait ffforward reasons why a kernel dependant driver can't be used.
1. Gnopernicus is compiled cross platforms such as Solaris, Linux, FreeBSD,
and others. A gnome-speech driver has to be non-os specific which the
doubletalk kernel driver is Linux specific.
2. The gnome-speech api uses bonobo as a core part of the api which is
linked into gnome and not kernel based. Any driver for Gnopernicus will have
to be designed around standard serial headers and the bonobo api.
