I don't know why they don't want to make it perfect, maybe they think they I don't agree. From my experience, the people at Stata Corp. have been very cooperative so far both in confirming the bugs and eliminating them. A "perfect program" is something of an abstraction.

I really like editors which can highlights key words those staff.
