Yelly Rspec formatter - Now for linux too!

Today I got ath CodeBrawl and really got interest in one of the chalenges.

Reading the Rspec Format chalenge Yelly, The Yellingist Formatter, writen by Chad Humphries<github> got my attention. The only problem is that I don’t code on Mac, so I don’t have the `say` command.

So, I made an improvement to use it under Linux. It requires esound (for sound routing) and festival (for speech synthesis)

On Arch, you can set it up using

# pacman -S esound festival

And here is the result. You may get it here <https://gist.github.com/1070850>
