Yes. Caveat not exactly a drop-in replacement as it has
a wider scope.

I asked on the Slint mailing list. I don't know how to ask to
other users.

This is supposed to be run interactively by users if and when they want 
to switch to/from:
- no speech
- speech with fenrir
- speech with espeakup
- speech with speechd-up
- speech with speakup using one of the available synthesizers
Only available options are presented

It is. these commands should be replaced if another init system.

This shouldn't be difficult, but I have zero experience with other init 

Cheers, Didier
