The problem is, IBM's ViaVoice SDK license is far from DFSG free. We can't
really use something like this unless it's freely redistributable.

Additionally, this kind of solution is nothing more than what you call it --
a hack. It's actually a quite gruesome hack.

I've been known for being a Berlin zealot, but Berlin will hopefully provide
a much better framework for features such as these.

..Aaron Van Couwenberghe... ..vanco@sonic.net.. ..aaronv@debian.org....

	Debian GNU/Linux:	http://www.debian.org

There are three kinds of people in this world: those who can count and
	those who can't.
