...one further observation: pico2wave mispronounces the word "Linux" (gives
it a long I, like "lie nuks"). espeak says it the way I do (like "linnuks" or
the name "Lennox" in English).

flite actually pronounces "Linux" the way Linus Torvalds does, with the
Finnish accent making it sound more like "lee nochs". That has to be a
special case in the code...
