I think you are referring to the fractional logit (flogit). These models are discussed (briefly) in Wooldridge's book. Also there is a talk by John Mullahy, see http://lhcwww.soph.uab.edu/presentation.pdf.

It is a relatively simple model and can be run with Stata.

glm <dv> <iv's> , link(logit) family(binomial) robust

As Mullahy's talk shows, it is critical to use the robust option.

But it does not sound like a general solution to me.
