Add IGV as an extension similarly to MEV

The IGV tool found at http://www.broad.mit.edu/igv/index.html is a neat java web start program used for visualization and exploration of genomic data. It is designed to handle different types of data which enables simultaneous visualization of e.g. gene expression and gene copy numbers for the same set of tumors. Also, one can import a sample annotation file for sorting and filtering of the data to be displayed.
The simplest way for this to work is to be able to export pre-defined file formats from BASE and make IGV as a clickable extension in the analysis tree.
Is this something that the BASE team can do?
