That is good news, thanks for the heads-up.

EDIT: I managed to build it myself, it goes something like this:
That's it. You get some errors about signing in the end of the build that can be ignored.
$ mkdir whatever
$ cd whatever
$ git clone git://anonscm.debian.org/tts/festival.git
$ tar cvf festival_2.1~release.orig.tar festival
$ gzip festival_2.1~release.orig.tar
$ cd festival
$ cd ..
$ sudo dpkg --install festival_2.1~release-2.2_i386.deb
You have to install some dependencies of course, but it was easy.
Read carefully the link above about changing the files
to make it work with the backward compatibility module that was added.

Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.
