Expression Cloning strategies for finding microbial CD8 antigens

Any words of wisdom or literature references?  I am familiar with the
trail that led to MAGE antigens.  Anything new with making libraries in
mammalian expression vectors, vaccinia, retroviruses, etc. to perhaps sort
out CD8 antigens in a moderately large virus?  Maybe some people have
tried and failed or succeeded witht he published approaches.  I am more
interested in a direct approach than peptide pool sequencing or predicting
from motifs when the HLA restricting allele is known.
