[R] An embarrassment of riches

I have a dataset which I am trying to smooth, using locally weighted
regression. The y values are count data, integers with Poisson
distribution, and it is important for the regression function to know
this, since assuming a Gaussian distribution will lead to substantial
errors. It is a time series; the x values have equal five minute
intervals.
Here is the problem: I have an embarrassment of riches. Unless I am
mistaken, the following R packages will do this: locfit, aws, sm, gss,
semipar, pgam, gregmisc, to name just a few. Questions: Which package
should I use, and which function in the package should I use for the
regression?
Here is the Google search result, restricted to r-project.org:
