No. I already descibed why *not*, and I descibed how to work with stats' family functions even if VGAM has been loaded. Please reread my former message and tell me what was unclear. You might also want to read the R News article on Namespaces by Luke Tierney. Moreover, glm is in stats which *has* got a namespace.
