Does this require that festival be run in server mode? Running festival in
sever mode is a huge security hole, you can enter arbitrary scheme code to
fiddle with files on the system, for example. It might not be a good idea to
package something that requires the user open a gigantic security hole on
their system to be useful.

I have a simple perl program written that runs as a wrapper around festival
in tts mode, accepts multiple clients, and says whatever any of them feed
into it. I've attached that.
