At some point, you should do nicely with physical modelling of the human
voicebox (pre-parametrized, beam over you voice metrics prior or during
the conversation), and use speech recognition at the other end. It's hard
to see how this coding should use more than a few baud.

Of course, it goes really hard on the DSP crunch. But we've got more than
a decade of straight-lop-plot Moore with photolitho still, or so I heard.
