Dear Michael,

It depends on how are you going to orient the second version,
technique based or analysis (research) base. In the case of the former
one, the first version, together with the Graphic Manual, has been
sufficient. What's more, the newest Stata expands the Graph module to
make graphing more Mouse-convenient, though the customization might be
compromised. The payoff of expanding examples of graph option, as
McCulloch suggests, is quite slim.

To sum up, my suggestion is to enhancing the analytic sense in the
second version.
