Doesn't have to be _solely_ for machines. Most of the R2 "speech"
appears to be whistles. I could see operating on that assumption, which
means someone who was (more than I!) adept with generating whistles
could potentially "speak" the language. It'd be one of those "easier to
comprehend than to speak" kinds of things. :)
