praat is essential for psychological research on speech perception. The
package should live where it would get the most attention -- regardless
of the name of the team. ExpPsy can take it. However, we are probably
the smallest of all candidate teams. So, if there is a chance that it
would be better off staying in -science or -med that would be the
preferred choice, IMHO.
