Can we reconsider this for bullseye? Nowadays the netinst image already
includes libicu, so adding brltty and espeakup won't add much to the
image size. We have had at least one user who was really surprised
that he didn't get braille&speech working in the installed system only
because he didn't have Internet available because of missing firmware.
Telling people to download the DVD-1 image for that case is not going to
fly :)
