I am new to the list. I will be more careful next time.

By the way, thanks for the prompt answer by Ben Jann. It improved my understanding of the whole thing considerably.

Wrong call, and my mistake. Evidently, as Ben Jann spotted
quickly, this was a reference to the Stata program
-jmp- on SSC and to a paper by three authors
with the same initial letters -- and not to a program JMP
produced by another company.

That said, the ambiguity would not have arisen
given use of the -cmdname- convention and proper
referencing, as urged in the Statalist FAQ.
