I don't think you'd have any licensing problems with the REDUCE Computer 
Algebra system (www.uni-koeln.de/REDUCE/, 
www.zib.de/Optimization/Software/Reduce/, 
http://homepage.ntlworld.com/codemist/reduce/), and it does what you 
ask. It's almost open-source: the regular version includes the full LISP 
source code, and it's quite reasonably priced.  It has some support for 
MathML, too.
