st: initial values for -xtmelogit-? |

I am doing a simulation that requires estimating a model using -xtmelogit- for each of 1000 iterations. Since the same model is being estimated using samples drawn each time from the same dataset, it seems that there should be some way to use the results of each iteration as initial values in the next. However, -xtmelogit- doesn't seem to accept -initial()- as a maximize option. Is there a way I don't see to persuade -xtmelogit- to start in a certain place? Getting the initial values seems to be the most time consuming bit of the estimation. (As an aside, I could use -xtlogit, re-, which is considerably faster, if only -predict- could be persuaded to predict random effects, something which apparently is just a minor fix: http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2007-03/msg00135.html I had hoped that Stata 10 would fix this, but apparently -xtlogit- is on the path to deprecation.)
