It sounds as if he was able to talk StataCorp into agreeing.

Well, the plot thickens...turns out my exhortation to use Jann's
routine is not necessary in Stata 10, in which there is indeed a
function invtokens(). It did not exist in Stata 9.2, which is why Ben
Jann wrote one. So correct, pre-Stata 10, use Jann's mm_invtokens();
in Stata 10, invtokens() will work.
