Austin,
you mistook my intention about an option store for the command "estimates use."
As soon as you want to compare the results of two or more estimation results, you have to follow two steps: First you load the results from disk using "estimates use filename" and then, second, store them into memory using "estimates store filename". You have to do this for each saved estimation result before you can start running e.g. likelihood-ratio tests. My idea was to combine these two necessary steps into one, with the help of a new option "store", like "estimates use filename, store".
This has nothing to do with saving data - which I definitely don't want to do for each estimation result!

No, it wouldn't be great.  I think you mean such a "feature" to bring the whole dataset back into memory.  If you saved the data along with every estimate (the only way to implement such a "feature"), you might fill up all the available hard disk space in your country in a matter of days.  Seriously, if you're using a large dataset (a few GB) and you saved it separately along with every estimate, you would run out of space very quickly.

Perhaps you are confusing saved estimates and saved data?
