I have a small recommendation. If the user hasn't explicitly loaded the IlluminaHumanMethylation450kmanifest package, then preprocessIllumina will give an error like :

Error in get(name) : 
  object 'IlluminaHumanMethylation450kmanifest' not found

Since the user isn't using any features of IlluminaHumanMethylation450kmanifest directly (i.e. the package has no methods to manipulate its objects, according to the reference manual), is it better style to have require(IlluminaHumanMethylation450kmanifest) inside of preprocessIllumina ? It might be more streamlined for those users that are newer to R.
