Further to this, converting much documentation available to notebook
format is not a trivial exercise for a single person (there is a lot of
content). So I picked the potentially more interesting bits and
GenomeDiagram is one of them (simply because the charts look cool,

I am also doing chapters 3, 4, 5 (seq), 9 (entrez) and 12 (popgen).
These will be easier because there are no chart i/o (though I might
add a few graphical things to spice things up).

This is another way to say, if someone wants to volunteer to help ;) ...
