The current behaviour is correct. It gives a decent default. If you
want to override it you could copy the service file to
/etc/systemd/servic/ and edit it there to add whatever command line
options you want to ExecStart=.

The reason we don't want to be using /etc/conf.d/* is that it is
Arch-specific, and hopefully we will one day be using a service file
provided by upstream, which would not know anything about conf.d.
Ideally, espeakup would have its own config file where you could
specify this option, but failing that making  a copy of the service
file as I outlined above should hopefully be ok.
