This is the only way I came up to do this as well.  I'd like to note
that there are over 600 dialogs in Stata (whew!).  Sometimes one
command will have several dialogs, e.g. for graphics, where we had to
make different versions for the Windows 98 operating systems, or in
cases like the -cii- command where we had more than one syntax to deal
with.
