Yes, I think our concerns were quite similar.  Module configuration should 
not be necessary.  Speech Dispatcher should be able to discover available 
automatically.  It should be quite simple for modules from the Speech 
Dispatcher source
tree.  All known modules would be on by default and Speech Dispatcher would 
only need to
handle errors during loading these modules properly (not report these errors as 
log them consistently, etc).  Some configuration would only be necessary for 
"out of the
tree" modules (including user defined generic modules).  Better than having 
in the main config file might be scanning configuration directory/directories 
for per
module files.

Quite separate problem is getting rid of the dotconf library (I guess there is 
no need
to explain why...).  We thought about dconf in this context, but this must be 
further.  As you noted above, it would not be of a great benefit in the current
situation, where clients mostly set everything for themselves according to their
configuration.  It would make more sense if the clients made use of Speech 
configuration better and the advantage would be a central client wide 
That's a topic for a separate thread, however.

Best regards, Tomas
