I'm just starting to look at integrating Luke Tierney's 'snow' package with
the 'affy' package in order to parallelize the work.  

Initially, I'm planning on modifying 'express' by adding a new parameter
"cl" for cluster.    Next I'll probably tackle ReadAffy and friends.

When 'cl' is a valid snow cluster, parRapply, parCapply, clusterAppy,  ..
will be called instead of 'apply( ..., 1, ...)',  'apply(.., 2, ..)',
lapply, etc. 

1) Comments on the plan?

2) Can I get CVS access (I'll do my work in a branch until OK'ed by the
group)?  This will save me the trouble of creating a local CVS archive for
this and trying to keep it in sync.
