Don't know if it's worth it, but could the microarray package be  
modified so that it deals with data generated from or interacts  
directly with Bioconductor (i.e. maybe including some specialized  
bioperl-run set of classes to run Bioconductor tasks, return  
lightweight bioperl microarray classes)?  Allen pointed out in a  
previous post that Bioconductor is the best pick for certain tasks,  
while Perl excels at others:

Might be nice if we could merge both strengths together in some way.
