Chris and Giovanni refer to -tabcount- from SSC. -tabcount- has 
modest generality for what it tries to do, but that
does not include marginal totals. The best I can 
suggest in this particular case is that you save the 
matrix of counts and then do other things with it. 
The best strategy would be Mata-based.
