Do we need a dummy library, Bioconductor, with 

.First.lib <- function() {
  while (library in bioconductor.libraries)

It appears that there are numerous subsets that might be of interest, and might not be worth power-loading everything (but it might be worth some kind of "topic/activity" based loader of the above, i.e. Bioconductor.topic("cDNA"), Bioconductor.topic("affy"), or similar activity-sets.
