Martin helpfully provided

qui reg pr we le c.we#c.le
margins, dydx(*)

Note that the results of that more concise calculation are exactly in agreement with the -lincom- method I posted, with one exception: - margins- constructs confidence intervals based on the Normal distribution and z-scores, while -lincom- does so with the t distribution (the difference that the -small- option invokes on several estimation commands). Naturally for a sample of reasonable size this matters not for inference.

You can also do things like

 margins, dydx(*) at(weight=4000)
 margins, dydx(*) at(weight=4000 length=200)

to see how these derivatives change over the regressor space.
