Thanks, Rafa.  I have looked at the oligo TilingFeatureSet.  The idea is to 
pair the data with an annotation package, it seems?  Will it be difficult to 
implement parsers and generate annotation packages for other array types like 
agilent (just as an example)?  

Is it possible and does it make sense to move TilingFeatureSet into Biobase to 
reduce dependencies for folks who want to use it, as it does seem to offer a 
general solution not specific to the oligo package?  If the consensus of the 
developers is that TilingFeatureSet is the way to go, I would vote for doing 
that (even if it isn't immediate, as I know that you and Benilton are still 
actively developing Oligo).
