st: results of -testparm- in table by estimate

I want to feed the results of -testparm- to -est-, but -testparm-
outputs r-class not e-class (and my understanding is that -est- can
include e() scalars)

so, I tried to trick the program (famous last words)

program define check , eclass
 	testparm x*			// the regressors in question start with x
 	ereturn scalar myp=r(p)	// an -ereturn list- shows this worked

      reg y x*  w1 w2 // and so on
      est store regr1
      est for regr1 : check

       est table regr1 , stats(N myp)

No sign of myp in the table!  just a blank row, appropriately labelled.

Where am I screwing up?
