speakup as modules

Top answer--flexibility is good. Having a choice means serving different
needs more comprehensively.

For example, in my case, on my portable machine, I may, or may not, have
a hardware synth plugged in. And, if I do have one plugged in, it could
one of several, a Litetalk or a DEC Talk Express, for instance. Because
Speakup is modular, I can also switch synths without rebooting.

In the long run, it's probably critical for Speakup to be modular if
we're ever to see it included in the stock kernel.

Many people seem to use it as  a module set, and I would think it's safer to have it talk at startup, to insure that kernels run smoothly, but this is just my opinion; maybe it's just because I used to misscompile my kernels so many times in the past.
