I endorse this suggestion. 

Another option is just to split the do-file into smaller
do-files. 

Do-files can call other do files, so you can have 
a hierarchy: 

--------------- project.do
do getdata
do analyse
do writethesis
do gettenuredjob
do getnobel 
---------------

----------------- getdata.do 
use whatever 
...
