The reason for this is because Gary King and his group no longer
thinks as much of Stata as they used to. Indeed, nowadays, they
explicity exhorts users of their -clarify- and -relogit- pacakges to
use the Zelig package on R instead.

(Indeed, the manual for Zelig makes a very interesting claim on the
very first page after the contents, on page 7:

"When you are using Zelig, you are also using R, a powerful
statistical software language.
You do not need to learn R separately, however, since this manual
introduces you to R
through Zelig, which simplifies R and reduces the amount of
programming knowledge you
need to get started.")
