It is available now at:

I agree with you.  However, so far, all users have copied the source
directly into their programs.  Copies are in espeak, a Chinese TTS, a
Russian TTS, and in some device being developed or the blind.  I would
much prefer the library approach.  However, I can't blame users for
taking the path of least resistance.

Done.  As an external library dependency, will it help the SD team if
I host at Brailcom?  I can see there being concerns about my
vinux-project.org site going away, but if it's at Brailcom, they can
be sure the code will hang around.
