Some of the new features, like -margins-, do entail a bit of a steep
learning curve, even if you mainly work interactively.
Still, the product has grown so much more powerful, so many of our "wishes
and grumbles" have been implemented, and the pdf manuals easily save half an
hour every single day! Kudos to StataCorp for this brilliant product!

Thanks Roger.  One of my fears is that as Stata gets more and more 
powerful, it will get harder and harder for amateur programmers to 
keep up with it.  When writing my own programs, I was amazed at how 
easy it was to add support for things like svy, stepwise, robust 
standard errors, etc.  These new factor variables sound like they 
could be more of a challenge.
