I don't know what proper Markov chains are, at least I wrote my own simple 
lazy Markov chain generator years ago that fulfilled my needs:

I have also written a package for Hidden Markov models:

If you write packages that fulfill the needs of your applications, that's 
certainly better than writing impressive frameworks where no one knows 
whether it is usable, at all. :-)
