I'm sure you've thought of it, but one could actually get this to do scansion too -- the CMU dictionary here http://www.speech.cs.cmu.edu/cgi-bin/cmudict has stress and syllable breakdowns.

I've tried to use CMUdict for computational poetry... it turns out to be more difficult than it seems at first because stress is context-dependant (especially with monosyllables).
