Using select/mapIDs to annotate probe IDs is an additional step that 
confuses many.

May I suggest we automatically populate fData with minimal annotation 
(ProbeID, entrez ID, symbol) if a known platform is detected.   We 
record the version and parameters (eg mapIDs multi=first) used to create 
fData.  But for beginners I think it would be a helpful start.

What do you think?
