[R] gamlss mu.start vector ?

Dear All,

I'd like to set up a loop whereby successive parameter values are used as
start values in gamlss (yes I know this isn't usually necessary ! -
unfortunately for my truncated data it is), to return the estimated
parameters etc. giving the lowest AIC value. 

I notice that mu.start can take a vector of values - but I can't find any
information as to what the function actually does with a vector of eg.
mu.start values - does it cycle through the values and then give the result
with the lowest AIC value ??
If it doesn't I'd appreciate any coding which has already been implemented
(presumably using "for" loops) to achieve the above.

Many thanks.
