Looks like predict.svm does not always return "probabilities" in all
cases, hence cannot be used in your case, I guess.
svmlight (interface in in packages klaR) will do, though. You also might
want to use sknn() (also package klaR), since it has a predict method
rather than knn().
For randomForest, we will enhance stepclass() to support it in future.
