Anybody working on a BioConductor/R wrapper of X-tandem? I am asking so we 
can avoid overlapping developments.

X-tandem is an open source search engine to identify peptide sequences from 
a mass spectrometry peak list. It is written in C++. Inputs/Outputs are 
mostly XML. Seems easy to wrap it.
It can work with other BioConductor modules of preprocessing mass spec data.

Suggestions from potential users are also welcome.
