Luke, please, how does this interact with the SPEECHD_PORT
settings done by spd-conf?

I think the correct place to put this variable initialization
is in ~/.profile according to Freedesktop. It should be read
by the text console as well as by X session. spd-conf already
does that, but it would need a little modification to respect
the better approach based on user id.

Yes, this is correct.

What would be the reason to disable it?
