Yes, I have seen that.  However, I needed a workaround until this lands
in sid.

Yes, me thinks this would be helpful.  If I install a fresh system with
a braille display connected or speakup enabled, I most definitely
want gdm to already launch orca for me, so that I do not have to
remember or research this key press.

BTW: There is apparently a bug in gdm's launching of orca:
When I login, a second orca is launch, while the one running
as user Debian-gdm continues running.  I am not sure if this is intended.
When I logout again, the gdm orca does not resume speaking.
So logging in again after a logout is currently not accessible on the
test system we just setup.
