As so often, I am struck by how far Stata 
already offers tools useful for the job, 
although also embarrassed by how slow I 
can be sometimes in seeing that Stata 
provides all that I need. 

As one example of what I see as a similar problem, 
I maintain a Stata data file which contains a list
of Stata packages I have put in the public domain. 
Then various standard commands, including -list- 
and -edit-, are quite enough for managing that 
little data base. 

An alternative for many projects would to maintain
information in a list of characteristics.
