Subject ctakes model

We are using a software package called svmlight and a derivative called 
svmlight-tk to train machine learning models in research. If the results 
are good we would like to include the models in cTAKES. We thought we 
should consult legal because this software uses a custom license not 
covered by FAQs, and we just want to be on the safe side. The full text 
of the license is attached.
(Just in case the attachment doesn't work I was able to find it on the 
web here: http://morphix-nlp.berlios.de/manual/node48.html but not at 
the svmlight webpage.)

To be clear, we do not want to redistribute the svmlight or svmlight-tk 
source or binaries or even use maven to download them. There is code in 
clearTK which can read these models and process new data and is license 
compatible. We are only talking about distributing models trained with 
the svmlight and svmlight-tk packages.
