I've been following this, and it seems like the gnome 2.4 transition
started Tuesday if I understand correctly.
They already uploaded a few packages, and they have 2.4 including most
of the a11y stuff at an unofficial repository.
The latest gnopernicus itself isn't there, but all the stuff it needs
seems to be. Gnome-speech 0.2.7 atk 1.4, at-spi 1.3.7 etc.
 I really hope these packages make it in.

I was going to wait until sarge release to try installing again, but if
the gnome a11y stuff gets updated I might try sooner.
If we could get speakup and emacspeak 18.0 in there in time as well this
sarge would be very up to date with accessibility.
As a matter of fact, I think as soon as they fix the daily isos I'll try
again so I can test that speakup kernel for you.
