Fellow Statalisters (especially StataCorp):

Thanks to StataCorp for the new Stata Version 11, with the new factor varlists. I am greatly impressed.

One immediate query. Is the undocumented -_ms_parse_parts- utility here to stay? (And are the other undocumented -_ms_- utilities also here to stay?) I ask because I would like to use this utility (or something similar) in my own Stata 11 packages, if it is not likely to disappear without warning in the near future. In particular, I would like to regenerate factor variables in -parmest- resultssets, the way I used to do with the SSC package -factext- (Newson, 2004).

And are there any other useful utilities that would be useful for parsing the column stripe elements of -e(b)-, and which are not documented, even under -help undocumented-?

Best wishes
