Hi Peter,
I think the ctakes-examples is probably a good starting point at least
in terms of maven modules, etc.  I think it would be good if we use
uimaFIT style as primary approach to wiring components together and
generate desc's as secondary...
I think the actual components that would be required is probably best
left up to what is actually required for best performing c-deid.  The
output would be interesting, I'm not sure if we should treat this as
an independent preprocessing component or part of a pipeline (in which
case, we may need to propose a change to the type system or perhaps an
alternative JCas view.  You can probably open up that discussion to
the dev group as you see fit.)

My 2 cents...
