How about the ones available after -glm-?

-glm- has more of a one size fits all approach. It doesn't have a lot of the customizations you see when using the more specific commands. There was a thread a long time ago about how after -logit- some residuals are computed "adjusted for number sharing covariate pattern" -- if that isn't the way you want to compute them you can use -glm- instead. But logit restricts you the way it does because the options listed are the ones deemed more statistically sound.
