One implication it would have, particularly for users with large data sets

so that users would have the option to choose. For my own work, doubles are
rarely needed, and I set them when they are needed.
So, StataCorp, could the change to the default be made as a simple update
in the current version of the exe? Would it have implications other than
the program not being BUG-compatible with the current version?
