Looks very interesting.. EDIT: it was moderately so...
also going to have a look at that one...
Yep - this one was the winner.
Will look to getting it native then...

Okay. so that would work via debian.
I had trouble ripping the jack libs out of debian.
Probably a native build of that app (without jack and pulseaudio) would go a long to way to bridging the gap you described in the top post.
It exports the phoneme's to STDOUT as I have pictured via the -x option and --phonout="<filename>"
Write output from -x -X commands, and mbrola phoneme data, to this file
And the realtime speech synth would doubtless meet the needs of the casual "make it do something cool!" user also.
That's my thoughts.
