I'll accept the guess. But note that my example was only twice as fast, so there would still seem to be some point where the more efficient coding of -collapse- wins.

When we generate bootstrapped standard errors and perform Monte Carlo analyses, it's useful to make the code as speedy as possible. So I thought about -collapse- for a moment and performed the following speed test listed below. The timing results follow it, showing that my homebrewed version was twice as fast as -collapse-.
