I too would say well done to all involved with archlinux and speakup. 
However my upgrade was slightly less smooth as I use OSS4 for sound and 
the OSS4 package didn't work with kernel 2.6.36, I had to use oss-hg 
from AUR but that has a problem with one of my sound cards in this 
machine. I guess if I had stuck with ALSA everything would have gone 
without any problems.
