Lowering default espeakup speed?

We are getting contradictory feedback from users:

- a lot of them find espeakup too fast
- a lot of them find it too slow

so I'm wondering whether the current default speed (the average) is
really a good default value.  People who want fast speed are usually
also those who are able to find in the documentation how to request
speed increase, while those who prefer a slow speed are often beginners
who have no clue about such things.  So the idea would be that the
default would be a "welcoming" slow speed, which people would be able to
increase at will along getting used to it.

What do people think about it?
