Hi Axel,

We always welcome new annotation packages.  But be warned that you would
be expected to maintain them and provide a updated version of them for
each release of Bioconductor.  That works out to me sending you an email
(requesting an update) twice a year.  The SQLForge package should allow
you to make a new annotation package.  You can see the vignette that is
bundled in the AnnotationDbi package for details.
