Take a look at Eva Cantoni's "Analysis of robust quasi-deviances for 
generalized linear models" paper in JSS 10(4) 

The tar'ed file contains S-PLUS functions, and IIRC the modifications to 
make `glm.rob' run under R were quite simple. I can't find my modified 
version right now, but I remember making changes to lots of `assign' 
calls... I also remember having trouble with `integrate' calls in the 
`quasi.rob.xxx' functions, but since I didn't have to use these I never 
tried fixing it.
