Done so now. Let's not wait unnecessary.

Summary for speech-dispatcher contributors:
speechd-up is failing to install (on several systems) because the
init script fails to start successfully. The success or failure of
starting speechd-up depends on
1) which output is used by speech-dispatcher, with alsa it work, but
   with the default pulse-audio it doesn't
2) how the speechd-up daemon is started, calling the init script fails
   but calling the exact same start-stop-daemon command manually on
   the command line succeeds.

The following remark may be spurious. While debugging, we
noticed that the directory that contains the speech-dispatcher socket
may depend on which init system is used. With systemd, it doesn't matter
how speechd-up is called, it puts the socket in
/root/.cache/speech-dispatcher/speechd.sock while with sysvinit-core upon
boot the socket is in
/.cache/speech-dispatcher/speechd.sock (after restarting it is in the same
directory as with systemd)
