[R] glm: mustart, different default for quasi and quasipoisson

for the
quasipoisson family the default for mustart is y+ 0.1,
for the quasi family with 'variance="mu"' the default is y + 0.1 * (y == 0)

I would like to know, whether
the setting for quasipoisson
is preferable for count data in relation to the quasi setting.
