There is a package orca in extra which depends on speech-dispatcher . In earlier versions of speech-dispatcher this package also provided python2 bindings required by the orca package.
Latest update of this package only provides python 3 bindings.
I am not sure if it is a good idea to also install python2 bindings as a part of this package and then add a provide keyword or seperate python2-speechd package should be created for this.
This will allow package orca to request python2-speechd instead of speech-dispatcher.
This task depends upon

Upstream has removed python2 support from 0.8... the bindings require python 3.x now.
