[BioC] Rdbi

I'm using R 1.7.1 and Bioconductor release 1.2 under Redhat Linux 8.

The package SAGElyzer (which is version 1.1.17 in BioC 1.2) requires the 
library Rdbi, when running under UNIX. This package is not available from 
CRAN anymore. You may still get it from http://rdbi.sourceforge.net/. Rdbi 
seems to have been replaced by the package DBI, which is available from CRAN. 
I have looked at the development sources for SAGElyzer (v 1.2.4) and it seems 
to have the same requirements as v1.1.17.

1) Is DBI sufficiently developed to replace Rdbi? If so, I guess it needs to 
be fixed in SAGElyzer.
2) Otherwise I think a mention of this issue ought to be placed in the FAQ 
since Rdbi seems to have disappeared from CRAN.
