Yeah, that pretty much excludes anything ClearTK based - ClearTK is far too deeply integrated
with UIMA. At one point, we were trying to segregate the classifier code from the UIMA code,
but we gave up on that because no one was using it outside of UIMA. It might be worth revisiting
that at some point, but it would be a ton of work.
