Scott Merryman replied, kindly directing Clint to a program 
implementing this. 

I want to comment briefly on "rarely used": 

I think it depends a lot on where you look. The question of 
terminology is also important: Stata's term "one-way plot" is 
not, in my experience, much used in the literature, but such 
plots are quite often known as, and implemented as, strip plots. 

In addition, a common way of implementing one-way plots makes 
them very similar, or even identical, to dotplots. 

-dotplot- has of course long been a standard Stata command, 
and dotplots are very common in several literatures.
