Yeah, about the best one can do at the moment, is to manually save the
values of interest in the /etc/speakup/<synth> directory and then the
load function will work better.  I got it down to a single cat error
which I haven't pinned down yet.  But at least I can switch between
speakout and software synth and have the right speech parms.

Oh a little old business; I finally had to reinstall my linux machine
recently so I went back to slackware and my shell passes down the $UID
environment variable now so I can use speakupconf now without having
to explicitly export the UID variable first.
