FITS format integration has already been done in ISDC by Reiner Rohlfs. We distribute astroroot which is root bundled with FITS and other goodies. For example we have a generic tool that can transform any FITS table into a ROOT tree, which is basically all what you need.

I would love to see FITS native into ROOT.

FITS is an important and unavoidable format if you do astrophysics. Many database that could be of interest to HEP (like the BATSE GRB catalog) are natively in FITS.

See you.
