The underlying problem, I guess, is 
several observations for several variables
and wanting to see similarities, differences, 
exceptions. 

A more positive suggestion is to consider
parallel coordinate plots. A Stata 8 
implementation is -parplot- from SSC. 
This produces a _very_ different kind of graph, 
but it is aimed at the same general problem.

gr7, star 

and 

version 8 and 9 graphics 

are completely separate, distinct, unrelated
and incompatible, and no one ever said otherwise. 

The only way you will get similar graphics in Stata 
8 or 9 is if someone writes it from scratch. It could be
done, but it would be a moderate project for a 
competent Stata programmer.
