The suggestion to make Stata 9 forward compatible obviously is not viable. 
So -saveold- is the answer.
 
However: Stata 8 and 9 have a -saveold- command saving in version 7 format. Wouldn't it be much more transparent if the final Stata 9 upgrade includes a clone of -saveold- with the name -save7-, and that Stata 10 has a -save9- command.
 
Just a thought...
