[R] QQ plot for deviance residuals in generalized linear models

Hello

In an article in J. Computational and Graphical Statistics, v 13, p. 36-47, Ben and Yohai propose quantile quantile plots for deviance residuals of generalized linear models, Normal quantile plots of these residuals are unsatisfactory, but B and Y propose a QQ plot of the deviance residuals against

F_D(d) = P(D leq d) = P(c(y,x,Beta) leq d)

they note that there are functions in S-plus 6.0 to generate these QQ plots for logistic and Poisson regression.

Has anyone implemented these in R?

TIA Peter
