I am looking for a way to save -tabulate- output as a matrix, with
row names and preferably without the "Total" row. This would be
similar to the way -tabstatmat- converts -tabstat- output to a
matrix. With the matcell, matcol and matrow options some of the
-tabulate- results can be saved but I don't know how to save the
value labels and the percent values. The following example makes
clear what exactly I would like to do.

. sysuse auto
. tab foreign

Car type |      Freq.     Percent        Cum.
---------+-----------------------------------
Domestic |         52       70.27       70.27
 Foreign |         22       29.73      100.00
---------+-----------------------------------
   Total |         74      100.00

I would like to create a matrix that looks like this:

tab[2,2]
          freq  percent
Domestic    52    70.27
 Foreign    22    29.73

This appears to be a simple problem but I could not find a solution
in the manuals, with -findit- or in the Statalist archives.
