VXL < http://vxl.sourceforge.net/ > encapsulates some of the basic classes
for  models, but more pertinent libraries remain in the hands of  academic
groups that use them. I believe this makes VXL a non-GPL'd project.

Either  way,  in relation to what the OP is after, segmentation tools  are
included  (C/C++,  not Python), as well as Markov models and some  of  the
rest,  I suspect. It it worth fetching the whole package via CVS and  then
searching  the files using FGREP and the like to see what intersects  with
your  needs. VXL is truly *huge*. Being Open Source, you are not bound  to
be  dependent on expensive interpreters, compilers or pay for any licences

Hope it helps,
