Thanks for for  your feedback.

I want to run the espeak program for speech synthesis. Basically I just 
want to run a command like:

espeak "Speech a few word"


espeak "Speech a few word" -w output.wav

In the first case, it may be better if the command is executed in non 
blocking mode for Squeak.
In the second mode a blocking mode may be better, or even semaphore will 
be helpful.
