Hi Dario

Doing something like
is probably a reasonable idea even though it ends up loading a
package.  It certainly saves typing.  We did not like depending on a
specific package (even though we only have one manifest package at the
moment), because of the chance that Illumina puts out more arrays.

I'll add this to the package reasonably soon, but not immediately.

It might be more streamlined for those users that are newer to R.
