That, Nicholas, isn't how the docs I able to find read, and from which I 
copy/pasted the phrasing quoted below.  The at_spi has nothing to do 
with an armlike Seriel Peripheral Interface that doesn't exist on any 
x86 board in my possession.

This may be something related to or used by brltty. synaptic won't let me 
remove it, too many dependencies.

correction: to do with Assistive Technology Service Provider Interface. 
no "nothing", my bad.

I may have plastic eyes but I certainly don't need a braille interface.
So I don't see as its useful for anything I do.

So I still need to stop/disable it. Killed it with htop, we'll see what 
else dies. But while htop can see it, its not in /etc/init.d nor in a 
systemctl display.  So whats starting it? Enquiring minds want to know.
