Dear Seth

I know this can be inferred from the package name. But to make it easier
to browse the packages, would it be possible to a add a few description
columns to the metadata webpage.  

For example Organism/Species, platform (Affymetrix/ABI/Agilent/MWG etc),
type (microarray/CGH etc) and perhaps the number of spots/probes. Also
perhaps a platform (ArrayExpress or GEO) accession number.  This would
make it a lot easier to browse and find a specific annotation package.  

Perhaps the simplest to implement would be to include an additional chip
name similar to the resourcerer chip names
