Dear R experts,  

I am relatively new to R and am interested in whether there is a package which will fit data with a swag of distributions and determine the optimal fit such as stat::fit from technical software solutions?

As is discussed in the following r-help posting goodfit in vcd seems to do this for three of the distribution

http://finzi.psych.upenn.edu/R/Rhelp02a/archive/37053.html, have there been any further developments for extending this to other distributions?  

Thanks in advanced
