BTW, it was only once I'd more or less finished writing the first version of this that I noticed that a festival.el comes with festival itself (yeah, I know, I should spend more time examining the contents of software packages). As it is, I decided to press on with this anyway because I'd done a couple of different things and, more importantly, I was having far too much fun.
