As far as I have always known, reading_punc only affects review-by-line,
speak from top, maybe "read window", and maybe a few other things.
Review-by-word and review-by-character are unaffected by any of the
punctuation level settings, and they always read all of the
punctuation.  I tend to keep punc_level and reading_punc set to the
same value, and use review by word and review by character to review
with all punctuation when I need to.  Maybe I'm not the typical Speakup

As an aside, the distinction between punc_level and reading_punc was
never even documented.  It's been around for a long time though.
