I am looking for a way to get the matrix of means, which is displayed

sysuse auto
table rep78 head, c(mean price)

The (relatively new) svy commands allow this, but they are quite slow
for the purpose. -table- was in Stata for ages, but it still does not
save any matrix results.

I am aware of an option replace, which saves the means in the dataset,
but it destroys the data, - something I am trying to avoid. Adding
preserve/restore will slow the program down sufficiently enough to
reject this way of doing it.

Is it possible to obtain a matrix of means from table (or another
command with a similar functionality) (preferred) ? Or is it possible
to tell table,replace to keep the existing data and add the computed
statistics as new variables (good)?

If you're interested in means:

sysuse auto
xi: regress price i.rep78*i.headroom, noconstant
matrix list e(b)
