This was requested by Mara Schmiing:
I was wondering whether it might be possibe to implement the "negative binomial" family into the GAM options for the mgcv package (negbin(mgcv)). During my research I realised that count data are often better modeled using this family than by (quasi)poisson. Anyway, I also know that computation can be quite heavy and depending on the input the analysis might fail to converge.
