Where exactly were you installing these files (full path/filenames 

The scripts need some minor changes to conform with D-I coding style, but 
I can take care of that.

Right. As the scripts themselves are negligible, I think we should just 
include them by default and determine actual support by including or not 
including the kernel module udebs. We'll have to see for what arches and 
images we can do that.

What is the status of the kernel support and the l-m-e packaging?

Well, that does not seem to be entirely accurate: they will work, but 
their effect will be nil. It seems to me that the 2 later script should 
check that the $SYNTH module was actually loaded successfully.

From the finish-install script:
>	if apt-install speakup-modules 1>&2

Will that actually work? Should that not include the kernel version, ABI 
and flavor?
