-- Error in binomial(link = "identity") : identity link not available for binomial family, available links are "logit",  "probbit", "cloglog" and "log"

Hi, I have a question, dealing with this error response. I'm trying to 
make anova on percentages. The variablethat has a biological 
significance is actually the percentage itself. Is it really not 
possible, to test a simple linear probability model with glm, using 
binomial model and identity link function ? I know it's hard to deal 
with probability responses out of [0,1] but well... help me !
There is an example of such a linear probability model in Agresti (1997) 
some software aparently do it
