Plus one, brother.  I'm a lazy programmer.  If I want to make my
application talk, I probably don't want to have to handle the audio I/O
on my own.

Well, the default these days is to use Unix-domain sockets.  They're
just files in the filesystem.  Access control is protected by standard
filesystem permissions, which are well-understood.
It's about as secure as pipes.
You have to jump through some hoops to use actual Internet sockets with
a recent Speech Dispatcher.
