I would reccomend that you make a package using the SQLForge vignette as
Sean suggested, then use DBI to add your mappings into it as "stand
alone" tables so that you can use the createSimpleBimap() to easily make
AnnDbBimap objects when your package loads. Please let me know if you
need further assistance.
