Good to hear you've got it working. While you didn't ask for it, I can 
imagine it would be useful, would you like the swspeak script to 
identify your language and start espeakup with the correct -V option? My 
idea is that all this stuff should be as transparent to the user as 
possible (IE. you've set your language, the console may be using your 
language, so why should you need to set extra for your speech to speak 
your language). Or would it be better to be an espeakup enhancement to 
auto detect your language? If I get time I may look at this.

Any thoughts, personally I would have thought espeakup would be the 
better place although swspeak script may be easier for me to modify.
