Serial conflict

Here's another thought:  Suppose we did away with all the hardware synth 
modules in speakup.  All interaction with speakup could be done through 
the /dev/softsyn device.  This would require converting the hardware 
modules to user-space programs which would communicate with speakup over 
the /dev/softsyn device and to the hardware synth over the /dev/tts 
serial device.

What I'm suggesting is to remove serial port support from speakup since 
it appears to be problematic at best.
