If you want to loop over values and run -twoway__histogram_gen- for
each distinct value, you can use -levelsof- and -foreach-.  -byhist-
on SSC uses the "total" category to pick bins using
-twoway__histogram_gen-, i.e. it uses the marginal distribution across
all by() groups.  In general, if you are comparing histograms it is
advantageous to use a common bin specification IMHO.
