[BioC] rtracklayer and gene symbols

Is there an elegant way to find the chromosome, start and end position 
to a given gene symbol via rtracklayer.

In the table browser on USCS website I can provide these information by 
pasting a list of identifiers, so the requested information must be 
somewhere in the tables.

My found solution is kind of indirect by first getting a table of all 
UCSC names together with gene symbols, finding the corresponding UCSC 
names to my symbols and then searching these UCSC names in a table of 
all UCSC names with location.

Thank you in advance,
