I tried biomaRt

ensnp = useMart("snp", dataset = "hsapiens_snp")
snp = getSNP(chromosome = 17, start = 73649033, end = 73679033, mart = 

Gave me a nice table but it did not seem to permit starting from the point 
of knowing the SNP and entering a list of rs######. I guess I could always 
fudge around. But it does not provide the one-stop I was looking for.
