I'm seeking to create an orthogonal pairing of two sets of observations
I've read the help for -orthog-, hoping it could do this, but I don't need to create the polynomial.

An example using the auto dataset is, if in a separate dataset I created records for four drivers, and then wanted to create records of matched sets where each driver got the opportunity to drive each car.

set obs 4
gen driver = _n
tab driver
save mydrivers.dta, replace

I'm seeking advice on how to achieve something like this:
* merge the two datasets, auto.dta and mydrivers.dta, creating in the process that orthogonal pairing
