[BioC] Cy3 Cy5 mixup?

Hello, perhaps I have misunderstood, but I double checked my reagents 
and Cy5 is the green dye, 532 nm. The LIMMA user's guide (Sept. 22nd, 
2004) has Cy3 as green and Cy5 as red. This could adversely effect 
people using the readTargets and modelMatrix functions it seems. My data 
seems to be unaffected since I made a design matrix by hand. I assume 
that in such cases limma calculates M as log2R:G where R is F635 and G 
is F532, which would be correct. Pardon me if this has been corrected 
already or if someone else already pointed it out.
