I have to think about this a moment. If you are going to use
autospawn and run as individual user, then you should not start
speechd up as a system service. The autospawn deal will start it for
you and then it should not pull in the environment variable
declaration or care about it. I need to check that part out and see
if going back to user mode would cause a conflict with that
environment variable. That will give me something to play with after
I get pulse going here. So far, I have pulse going for playing media
files from the console. I'm a bit chicken to restart ALSA just yet
because I don't wanna lose speakup with espeak. Since ALSA is
configured now to use pulse, I might get away with not changing or
recompiling espeak yet. If it weren't for the threat of losing speech
and thus access to my system, I would be a bit more brave here. At
least I can ssh into this box from my laptop if I break speech, I
