I think this is necessary!

Imagine the average DC user creates a nice stack that uses "speech" and 
deploys the actual stack (batteries NOT included!)...

The disappoinmtent would be very big if the end-users would NOT hear
what the user intended to be "spoken" :-)

Or will just see an error if any hint at all why it does NOT work for 

So providing all necessary and possible libraries/external with the 
Player IS
in fact a very good idea :-)

And remember: This will be a ONE time (per version ;-) download!
