Here's a feature - someone may have a use for it.  (Found in Stata 10
but a consequence of the documented command.)

A scatterplot drawn with equal axes - aspect(1) - looked fine until I
added a title, which caused the Y axis to be pushed left away from the
plot area. The solution was to add "span" as a sub-option.  The reason
is that the title is written outside the plot region but left-justified
to align with its border.  With the aspect fixed, pushing the border out
made a gap.

sysuse auto
scatter mpg weight,  ti("This will be a long long  long long  long
title", span) aspect(1)
   graphregion(color(red) icolor(green)) plotregion(color(gold)) 

scatter mpg weight,  ti("This will be a long long  long long  long
title") aspect(1)
   graphregion(color(red) icolor(green)) plotregion(color(gold)) 

scatter mpg weight,  ti("This will be a long long  long long  long
title") 
   graphregion(color(red) icolor(green)) plotregion(color(gold))
