But like good data analysts everywhere we should note that data are
often open to many quite different explanations and interpretations. In
this case, one recurrent thought is that several quite different
approaches to (partly) automated production of reports are _all_
popular, i.e. there is no absolute market leader that cries out for
official adoption. Another is that user-programmers are producing
attractive solutions with many appreciative users. I am sure that a
StataWeave would find users too, but the fact is that those who swear by
the Word will usually not touch LaTeX, and vice versa. 

What's ATS? What "stopped working"?

The fact that -ssc hot, n(4)- throws up nothing but "translation"
packages
is certainly not lost on StataCorp...

I think one disappointment with Stata is no package like Sweave for R  
or SASweave for SAS for weaving together publication quality text,  
code, output, and figures into one file, more or less seamlessly. HTML  
output is also good thing. I have used and appreciated log2html.  
Improvements would be great. ATS also had an HTML package that worked  
figures in, but I think it stopped working. It would be nice to have  
HTML and LaTeX output, but HTML at minimum.
