Removal of support for stat packages (Omegahat, Stata, others)

Does anyone still use the Omegahat support that ESS provides?  Not
having used it in a while, I was recently informed that it's broken on
the most recent versions of XEmacs.  

I'd like to remove it from ESS as bit-rot, unless someone is still
using it (you can reply privately if you want).

Stata is a similar issue -- Bill Rising's version is better in many
ways.  While we've talked about integration, no one has had time.
The current version works only marginally well with Stata 7 and higher
(note that I used Stata semi-heavily until Stata 7 was released). 

Right now, as far as I know, we've got in ESS core, package to

R: Kurt, Martin, Rich, Tony, Stephen

XLispstat: Tony

S-PLUS: Rich, (?Martin)

SAS: Rodney, Rich

Stata : ??

Omegahat: ??

iPython (ha, bet you didn't know about that one :-): Tony

Comments welcome -- it won't take much to save the files, but I'm not
going to support definite bit-rot if I can avoid it.
