Thanks to Kit Baum, a new package called -esto-
is available from the SSC Archive.

-esto- stores a quick copy of the active estimation 
results for later tabulation (see example below). 

-esto- is an alternative to official Stata's 
-estimates store-. The main differences are:

 o -esto- does not require the user to specify a name 
   for the stored estimates.

 o By default, -esto- does not store the e(sample) 
   function. This conserves memory and also speeds up 
   tabulation programs such as -estimates table- or 
   -estout-. (A drawback is that some post-estimation 
   commands may not be applicable to the stored 
   estimates. Use -esto, esample- if you intend to 
   apply such post-estimation commands.)

 o -esto- may be used as a prefix command (e.g. 
   -esto: regress y x-).

 o Additional (scalar) results may be added to the 
   estimates while storing them.

To install the package, type 

 . ssc install esto

-esto- is compatible with Stata 8.2 or newer.

Hope you like it,
ben


Example:

. sysuse auto
(1978 Automobile Data)

. esto: quietly regress price weight
(est1 stored)

. esto: quietly regress price weight foreign
(est2 stored)

. estimates table *
