Well, you could port it... (Or maybe Gordon is going to do that
himself eventually? I'm pretty sure he wouldn't have anything against
a GPL'ed port after talking with him in Odense last year.)

I did a quick check and it is slightly tricky because the code
accesses internals of glm family structures in a rather S-Plus
specific way. 

It's not like the information isn't there in R, though, just that
family$family["name"] doesn't work (the vector is there, but has no
names attribute in R), as.family is missing in R (but we do similar
stuff at the top of glm()), etc.
