A port pf CanFestival to eCos would be great, but the eCos maintainers
would prefer to avoid LGPL in the eCos repository.

I took a brief look at the CanFestival sources. Copyright appears to be
held by three individuals at present. Perhaps you could ask them if they
would accept an additional license. The eCos license would be ideal, but
we can also accept BSD-licensed code from "certain trusted sources". If
an additional license is not possible, please get back to us and we can
think again.
