Here one of R's own pushes to forget about Sweave in favor of XML.
That might be a direction for Stata to go in, since XML is open and
all we might think about is a comparable routine to Sxslt (http://www.omegahat.org/Sxslt/

there is no direct support on the Mac, as the format of the graph

is talking about OpenOffice.
* Available graphics formats are platform-dependent:
Linux: EPS only
Mac: PDF and EPS
Windows: PNG and EPS
Thus, except on Windows, Stata graphics are NOT directly supported
for ODT source/target files, because ODT does not support EPS or PDF.
For the same reason, for a LaTeX source file, you can't directly get
graphics when the target is PDF. One way to work around this is to
configure appropriate graphics-format converters (Manual Section 6.4).
For Linux LaTeX with a PDF target, an alternative is to make the DVI
target, then convert that to PDF using dvipdf, dvipdfm, or similar.

I am also wondering if Bill Rising is improving the rough edges of
StatWeave with regard to Stata use alluded to in the talk.
