Would be interesting!

BTW, Greg Warnes, Georg Kainradl (a student of mine) and I are
(more=Greg or less=Fritz) busy putting together a genetics package,
which provides classes and methods for classic statistical genetics
(representation of genotypes & alleles, hardy weinberg test, plotting
of genome scans, read/write linkage par/pre format, etc.). No fancy
microarray stuff :-)

Should appear on CRAN devel within a month or two.

Joining forces for not re-inventing the wheel would certainly be a
good idea.
