grml has all the relevant options for handling language stuff, so if
espeakup just needs to be started with some special options when
using german settings (using lang=de) with swspeak this shouldn't be
a big deal, yes.

Michael, you seem to be very good at all the swspeak/espeakup/...
related stuff. Are you interested in helping us in better
integration of swspeak/espeakup/... at grml? I don't have any active
developers working on accessibility in grml (so far I'm doing all
that stuff on my own), so I'd highly welcome you as a contributor.
