retrieving synthesized auio data?

I need to generate the audio data, though probably not as wave files. In
short, I need to be able to generate the audio data and have it passed
back to a buffer in my program for writing to a file of my choosing, as
Rockbox uses a few different files structured in different ways. So yes,
I need it for further processing, and an output module probably wouldn't
be the way to go for this. I don't want to have to switch output
backends for this program to work, I want it to work seemlessly for the
user. Since speech dispatcher isn't able to do this yet, I'll probably
end up just implementing espeak support directly for now, abstracted so
that switching over to speech dispatcher once this is supported will be
relatively painless.
