[BioC] GO analysis

I would like to do some post annotation analysis on my gene list from an
Affy experiment. Basically we want to see if the set of genes has any
statistically over represented GO ids in comparison to the total of the
genes in the chip. An over representation probability should be given to
each of the categories.

This is in line with what some packages already do: EASE, GeneMerge,
GOminer, fatiGO (web)... But I was wondering if somebody did something
like this already in Bioconductor or maybe it is not a good idea to
implement this in R as it is not the fastest text searcher.

Any suggestions welcomed
