[speex-dev] de-essing into speex?

are there plans to add "de-essing" as part of the speexenc procedure,
to make it possible to use lower quality compression without getting
those horrible computer-like "ess" sounds in the finished result?

like if you say "someone said the sun is shining", there is a lot of
ess sounds, and these will sound "computer-ish" at vbr qualities below

i know about some people making de-ess software that could be
integrated if that is interesting.

right now, voice compression in windows media encoder seems to do a
better job than spx, and i would hate to see an open source project
loose out to microsoft.
