Looks good, thanks for the input.

We (ESS core) have often hoped for a Stata expert/user/interested
party to try to make the connection better.   2 people have
contributed small bits, but there is starting to be a good candidate
for bit-rot in the code (I've not used Stata in a "daily manner" since
around 1998 or so, and no longer have access to the product in my
current job).
