I'm sure personal machines will be set up with this as a default, once
all the bugs are cleared. One known issue, last it was working in F-8,
is that you could get speech via GDM, or speech on the Desktop after
login--but not both. Rather a bug.

Also, the intent is that Ctrl-s needs to be available so that any GNOME
desktop, whether your sister's, your neighbor's, the university's, or
the local coffee stand's, can work via a reliable "gesture."
