Just my opinion, but in order for YASR to be more usable, it needs to be 
able to run as a background process similar to brltty. As it stands now, 
the last version of YASR I tried still ran as a subshell, rendering it 
nearly unusable except in a single terminal. The subshell approach does 
have the advantage that it can run in gnome-terminal or xterm, but for 
most tasks, a background process would be much more desirable. I may be 
way off base, but I'm thinking that even if someone does step up and 
maintain the YASR code again, it will most likely need to be redesigned 
in order to be used systemwide.
