[BioC] limma

Hi there,

I would like to explore the idea of creating a function that is 
a  modification of the normalizeWithinArrays() with printtiploess option of 
the limma package.

We are spot quality control prior to normalization which results in some 
genes being dropped. Once that happens then we no longer have complete 
sub-grids; normlizeWithinArrays will nor longer work with the printtip 
loess option. So I wish to make a modification to the normalizeWithinArrays 
function that will re-index each sub-grid, so that the print top loess can 
be performed.

So I have been looking for the source code for limma, but it seams to be 
unavailable since the package is distributed as a binary. I have checked 
the author's page but its not there either.

I would like permission to look into the limma package source code and 
re-factor the normalizeWithinArrays() function to do what I want.

Can somebody send me the source code ?
