Ah I certainly didn't mean to make it look that way. Yes a gamma GLM
with log link is also a very good choice. What I like about quantile
regression is that as long as it's assumptions are reasonably met,
it's relatively immune to choices of the exact distribution. But it
can be tricky to interpret.
