Speech Dispatcher and Cepstral

Thanks for the additional suggestions.  Actually, I did the "Major hack"
as a tempererary measure while I figure things out.  Yes, the progocol
logging test reveals that speechd-up is setting the voice explicitly to
to "MALE1" so there's my answer:).  I think speechd-up is small enough
that I can get in there and possibly add another command line option
that would allow users to specify on the fly and if left blank, use
whatever speech-dispatcher is defaulting to.  This should be easy enough
a fix.  I'll have to figure out how to change the default in speechd-el
and perhaps modify that one too to not hard code any default.  Like you
say, let speech-dispatcher do the defaulting.

Thanks again for the tips and direction.
