So, what would those alternative scripts do?

Please see http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=172539 which is
IMHO the way to solve those issues.

It feels a bit second-class to me.  I'd prefer to have
a sane default config, or some debconf questions.  Then, blind and
sighted users could use the same executable...

The problem mainly is that blynx does not really tell what it does.
I guess it should also do Link-numbering, but then, we're already
entering a crazy teritorial, because for example, I as a braille dcisplay user
for instance, hate link numbering, because it costs space.  A speech
user probably loves Link Numbering.  So, what would blynx
do, and why would it do that.
You see, it is not that easy.
