Phil Schumm presented something along the similar lines of combining LaTeX code with Stata code at one of the NASUGs, two or three years ago. I am happy with producing all my tables using -estout- and then \input{}ing them. I am OK with hitting some buttons twice. The thing is, if a person has figured out LaTeX, they would be able to figure out -file- and all that to produce whatever formatting they need. But I would guess that on statalist, 75% of people copy/paste their results to Word, and it is evene worse in the Big World of Stata users where the ratio will more likely be 90% to 10%. The LaTeX base is there, it is active, but hardly overwhelming. I would imagine that with R users, the situation is likely to be reverse: LaTeX is pretty much a prerequisite to writing a dissertation with more than 10 formulas in it... and most (bio)statistics or econometrics dissertations would probably exceed that limit. And that's where R is sitting.
