You've already done the most dangerous and daring

on -outreg-, and it seems to me that the main decision
is yours, not anybody else's.
It seems like (a) making a good faith effort to reach the author, or (b) calling it outreg2, would be options. outreg is one of the most downloaded programs, so whoever wrote a new version could be opening themselves up to lots and lots of questions about it, which might be especially bad if you mostly just know the new tweaks and not the old stuff.

Given that ease of use seems to be outreg's biggest advantage over estout - would it be possible to write some sort of shell command (esteasy?) with syntax similar to outreg?
