Serial Synthesizer Support

Thanks to both of you.  My C programming background isn't really heavy
but I could work from a clone of some existing code.  I just need to
track down that serial based module I thought I saw in the past.
Hmmm, wonder if I could dig it out of some really old version of
speech dispatcher.

Hey, one really quick and dirty way to get this started might be to
take something like the swift-generic module and change the command
string to echo the text to a pipe redirecting the output to
/dev/ttyS0.  Of course, the /dev/ttyS0 should be a user-definable
variable.  Yeah, I'm gonna jump on this to see if that can start
things going.  Like I said before, my biggest concern would be
indexing but I'm not sure if any of the generic modules support
indexing.  Just that when we begin work on specific modules for the
serial synth, I would want to include indexing if the synth has it;
the Speakout, for example, does.
