Dear all,

Using the quasibinomial and quasipoisson families results in no AIC being
calculated. However, a quasi AIC has actually been defined by Lebreton et al
(1992). In the (in my opinon, at least) very interesting book by Burnham and
Anderson (1998,2002) this QAIC (and also QAICc) is covered. Maybe this is something
that could be implemented in R.

Take a look at page 23 in this pdf:
