that did not extend to any canned solution
yielding precisely this.

An alternative route starts from Roger Newson's
-pcontract- and -xcontract- (Roger:
why are there are two commands?).
The -pcontract- package was a first attempt. The -xcontract- package is a slightly later package which supersedes the -pcontract- package, and which should always be used. (Perhaps I should withdraw -pcontract- to prevent confusion, but a lot of the Stata community do not seem to like people withdrawing packages.)

Thanks again to Nick for his helpful advice during the development of -xcontract-.
