Yes, that would be nice.

As a workaround here is my ut2004 start script for those who don't have
speechd constantly running:

----- snip -----
sudo killall speechd
sleep 1
sudo speechd
sleep 1
sleep 1
sudo killall speechd
----- snap ----

Not very elegant I know, but it works. However you need to configure sudo
correctly before using it. See man sudo and man sudoers.
