That's an interesting claim, although quite unspecific. 

But if the implication is that those user-written commands use more
resources than Small Stata allows, then it's not a criticism of those
commands, except secondarily if the required resources are not
documented or implied. 

Otherwise I have no idea what this implies. On behalf of
user-programmers everywhere, I invite Constantine to make his report
specific.

It's not as easy as this. Certain user-written commands won't run on 
Small Stata and unless you want to look carefully at their code there's 
no way to tell until you actually try them on a Small Stata. I've had 
the same problem myself.
