[R] poisson regression with robust error variance ('eyestudy')

Dear all,

i am trying to redo the 'eyestudy' analysis presented on the site
with R (1.9.0), with special interest in the section on "relative risk 
estimation by poisson regression with robust error variance".

so i guess rlm is the function to use. but what is its equivalent to the 
glm's argument "family" to indicate 'poisson'? or am i somehow totally 
wrong and this is not applicable here?

thx a lot-
