emacspeak-autostart script (could be part of emacspeak proper, or
could be a separate file in emacspeak-autostart package).  Then
installing that package causes emacspeak to autostart.

(The fmakunbound call is intended to ensure that the autostart
function only gets invoked once, but that may be more paranoid than
