Indeed, there are several others who have had a go 
at some tabling problem. 

The idiosyncratic surveys in 

Problems with tables, Part II
Stata Journal 3(4): 420--439 (2003) 

Problems with tables, Part I
Stata Journal 3(3): 309--324 (2003)

covered some of the terrain. 

Meanwhile, the ingenious, whether Roger or dodger, 
can take a stab at the help for -_tab-. 

Mind you, as an documented undocumented command, 
even as compared with an undocumented undocumented 
command, -_tab- may not survive the caprices of 
Stata's developers. But it looks
like the object of admiration given its touch 
of class.
