Currently exists in MSnbase with signature
setGeneric("qual", function(object) standardGeneric("qual"))
As far as I know, only used in that packages. I'm more than happy to use
BiocGenerics::qual when/if it becomes available.
Currently exists in mzR with signature
setGeneric("header", function(object, scans, ...) standardGeneric("header"))
and is used at least in mzR and MSnbase.
I guess that signature, as it is, wouldn't be a good for BiocGenerics.
