Ah well, figured as much.

I have a bunch of anno packages for custom spotted array chips from a
years back that I was looking to bring into the modern age, and in
cases would have to go track down the mapping files and such again ...
it seemed worth looking into if there was a way of moving from one to
other w/o doing just that. Its not a big deal, was just trying to
out the path of least resistance.
