yes, unfortunately signalp ( i think ) and tmhhm are not Free as in
Liberty available (who on earth sends uuencoded tar files as mail
attachments these days?) but upstream may be convinced to gracefully
allow for the repackaging of the binaries, which can be in nonfree.

As stated in the InterPro documentation, the manual and database
may be copied and redistributed freely, without advance permission,
provided that this Copyright statement is reproduced with each copy.
The InterProScan software is distributed under the GNU license, as
are the included scanning tools (except SignalP and TMHMM, see later).
Therefore, you do not need a special license for commercial use but
please cite the resource and keep the Copyright statement with your

InterPro - Integrated Resource Of Protein Domains And
Functional Sites

so, this is definitely possible, but the framework needs cleaning up
and disentanglement.
