about -set-'s -permanently- option, as in -set memory 20m, permanently-,
which would change Stata to come up with 20 megs allocated.

Stata stores -permanently- information in the registry on Windows computers,
in ~/Library/Preferences/<dir>/<filename> on Macintosh, and in
~/.stata9/<dir>/stata9.rc under Unix.  If the registry is cleared, or 
the files erased, Stata reverts to default settings and recreates the 
registry entries or files.
