We are currently moving from the Julielab wrappers to the "official" 
UIMA integration.  Given that the postag is now a (string) feature of 
the token, instead of an FSArray of PosTag annotations as in the 
Julielab version, this means we need to change our type system. As we're 
using OpenNLP for much of our base (sentence splitting, tokenization, 
POS tagging, and maybe chunking) we obviously looked at the provided 
type system to base our types on.

I think we'll just go ahead using our own types and thus avoiding the 
problem, but it would probably be best to fix the OpenNLP example TS. 
It might be a bit painful though for people who have already started 
using it, and might get problems if there are different definitions for 
the same type (opennlp.uima.Chunk).
