I'd be typically more interested in doing random-effects meta
analysis 
and I haven't got Stata 9 yet, so I can only really guess, but
perhaps 
the new mixed models capabilities will be of some help here?

I'm not quite sure how the overall effect and variance estimates from 
the meta-analysis commands might compare to those available from the 
new functions, and I appreciate that's crucial (!), but in principle
is 
this goodbye to meta, metan, metareg etc? Random-effects analysis to
be 
handled by mixed models commands, graphics to be handled by Roger 
Newson's portfolio of commands.

It would be useful to hear from people who've tried out the new 
commands.
