SPUG: Festival speech synthesis and perl

I'm using Festival for some speech synthesis.  The modules on CPAN
supporting Festival are all years out of date (all of them date from the
previous century), and none of them install without modifications.  Anyone
else using the Festival server from Perl?  If so, what are you doing to talk
to the server?

It's not like it's hard to roll your own, but it seems unlikely that no one
else has already done this.  I'm surprised by the state of CPAN for this,

(I suppose I should ask the more general question too - what's the best way
to do speech synthesis from perl?)
