with speech-dispatcher installed:
[dima@bmg /]$ pydoc3.4 -k virtualenv
Usage: pydoc3.4 [options]
A simple dialog based tool for basic configuration of Speech Dispatcher
and problem diagnostics.

pydoc3.4: error: no such option: -k
[dima@bmg /]$

without speech-dispatcher:
[dima@bmg /]$ pydoc3.4 -k virtualenv
virtualenv - Create a "virtual" Python installation
[dima@bmg /]$

Some searches return results and then die, some don't return any results.

speechd_config tries to evaluate process comman line using OptionParser regardless on module load. it is a violation of contract.

I'm not sure how to correct it though. I'll report upstream too, but don't keep your hopes up because upstream bug tracker only has issues from year 2012 for Python modules.

Sadly chromium and chromium-dev require speech-dispatcher. I'd gladly live without, but since there is a requirement, and this package breaks much larger functionality, I guess we gotta patch it up.
This task depends upon

currently pydoc3.6 seems work

so I think we can close the bug
also because upstream is dated 2014
