For various reasons, using third party statistical algorithms in PSPP is 
rarely possible, without compromising the goals of the project.  I think there
is a FAQ entry which talks about this.

Thanks for your feedback.

     Transition data analysis is a quite general purpose gnu statistical

     Have you ever considered using their source code for PSPP? This would in my
     opinion speed up the development of pspp enormously. Or am I missing
