This was badly phrased. It could be read as a criticism 
of -statsby-. Rather, there is no reason to expect that -statsby- 
could work as users might desire with globals specified 
on the command line. 

In context, leaving results behind in globals was a good 
and useful method for Stata programmers, and it is not 
completely obsolete. But it has long been superseded by 
the practice of results behind as r() or e() class results.
