I'm not Mario or Bill, but we do tend to think alike on these things.

I've added this website to the list of things to consider for inclusion into
Stata.  Some questions that immediately come to mind are concern continuous
covariates.  Do you average over those values you have observed or do you
integrate over some assumed distribution?  Or is this method appropriate only
for discrete covariates?  If so, what do you do if someone indeed has
continuous covariates? ...

In any case, we'll take a closer look.
