Speech-Dispatcher and Punctuation

Thanks for the explanation concerning the punctuation issues with
Speakup, Speech-dispatcher and Espeak.  I really don't wanna mess with
Festival much but I do have Flite installed; perhaps I can seem some
results there.  It all makes sense and I figured most of that.  Shame
that speech-dispatcher doesn't support punct level changes with the
generic setup.  I wonder how hard it would be to develope a binary
driver program for espeak and/or Cepstral.  I do know C pretty well and
C++ even less but it would be a good learning experience since Espeak
has a run-time library now.  Even if we modified the generic file
somehow to trigger the --punct option for espeak, you wouldn't be able
to support a 3 option level; you would have all or none but not some.

Anyway, thanks for any help and let me know if I can help in any way.  I
would really like to explore the driver route for espeak.
