First let me say that I actively discourage any use of s.e. for models outside
the normal distribution, whether t, normal, or Chi-squared test are applied.
Use differences in deviance. The s.e. can be very misleading.
I was just pointing out a problem with R output in the glm() function.

Now to the new data facilities in 0.5. data.index() and data.doc() work
except that there is no doc for iris - try attenu.
However, data(iris) does not work. 
  Error: couldn't find function data.file
data.get() used in some demos is also missing.
