I am analyzing some Illumina BeadArrays downloaded from GEO, but when annotating the results I noticed the select function can apparently not access all annotation information. I think this is a bug, but please correct me if this is intentional...

The arrays are Sentrix Mouse-6 v1.1 arrays, and I use the illuminaMousev1p1 package for annotation. Obtaining e.g. the Gene Symbol goes fine, but when I try to access the 'custom mappings' (e.g. PROBEQUALITY) this fails... despite the fact these are listed.. Using the old mget approach does work, however...

The problem here is that these annotation packages are modifications of the ChipDb packages defined in AnnotationDbi, but they don't provide any additional functionality to access the extra tables.

In an ideal world these annotation packages would depend on an additional package that extends AnnotationDbi to provide that functionality. But since these are contributed packages, any package to extend AnnotationDbi to accommodate these changes will likely have to come from the contributor or other interested parties.
