Richard is right that -micombine- is regarded as by its authors as
superseded by -mim-. 

Stuff remains on SSC or in any other Stata software archive for one or
more of at least the following reasons: 

(a) Because no one asked for it to be removed. 

(b) Because often newer stuff requires a later version of Stata than
users may have. That is, older stuff may remain useful to people who
cannot afford to upgrade. 

(c) Because people may wish to run other do files or programs referring
to it to produce identical or compatible results, or to avoid rewriting

(d) For comparison purposes. 

(e) It does no harm and takes up minimal space.

Royston as author or coauthor, so I am not sure why both continue to
