Well, the 'norm' option simply adds another -twoway- plot to the
kernel density; if you are using -twoway- anyway, you can call it
yourself:

twoway (function y = normden(x,mean,sd))

I reckon that allowing the 'norm' option in -twoway kdensity- would
clash with general -twoway- behaviour (options for legends,
xrange/yrange etc.).
