Well, that's questionable: espeak provides many languages, while
festival is a nicer engine for a couple of languages. The espeak
dependency is quite strong since it's a direct library link. The
festival dependency is not, and indeed is a Recommends ATM, so you can
indeed drop festival if you do not want it. Should this really be
lowered to a suggest?
