[R] cluster function to use with GLM

I am surprised: a Generalized Linear Model does not have clusters, nor 
did glm() allow clusters in any version of S-PLUS I have used.

I suspect this is a GEE model, for which see packages gee, geepack and 
yags (not on CRAN) under R.  But you can also have Generalized Linear 
Mixed Models, and there are several R packages to handle those.
