Subject   st: Reshape or other approach for multiple-response data

Friends,
I have a long dataset with variables that allow multiple responses per
subject. So it looks like:

ID    var1    var2
1        3        5
1        2        .
2        3        4
2        .        5
etc.
Reshape doesn't like multiple responses for a single variable. What's the
most efficient way of reshaping to wide, with each variable becoming a
response-specific dummy, i.e., var1_1, var1_2, etc.
thx....arnold
