Good point, my mention of BIC was meant to mean: the closest thing to Bayesian model comparison in Stata is the BIC. If Brian is really serious about Bayesian than R (www.r-project.org) and winbugs (http://www.mrc-bsu.cam.ac.uk/bugs/welcome.shtml and http://mathstat.helsinki.fi/openbugs/ ) are good (and free) places to look.
