The above two could be moved into more of a 'GUI' application (e.g.
xsorcery (Xdialog-based GUI) tim (GNOME-based GUI which hasn't been
updated in a long time), ksorcery (KDE-based GUI), or ensorcel (etk-based GUI),
all of which would need updating for the new layout ;)). Someone could also write
an ncurses GUI for those wanted a non-X GUI. Perhaps just 'move' the
GUI code in question (log menu and spell menu currently) into another
'script' ('nsorcery' for nCurses-based GUI?).

I believe those (festival, flite, etc.) just need to have the text
piped into them, so the sorcery-sound-* spells could have optional
dependencies on those and then setup the information (libmedia may
need modification to support this, I have not looked).
