#886 code cleanup: remove ssml_ignore_l_angle.

It looks like ssml_ignore_l_angle is just dead code. Can you find any use for it?

It is only set in AnnouncePunctuation if end_clause != 0. Even when manually setting ssml_ignore_l_angle there seems to be no effect on anything.

For example, this doesn't change after the commit: src/espeak-ng -m --punct "<speak>Here's a &lt; and a &amp;, and < and &. This is still &lt;(&lt;)(&lt;)</speak>"

If a use case for this is found it should be better documented.

looks like commit 1a2f454af378 from 2008 was first to have ssml_ignore_l_angle in AnnouncePunctuation.
