I'm not expert in the theory of -suest-, but after looking at the
equations in the manual entry, here's my guess: -suest- works when the
program computes a score for each observation that is a function of
the regression coefficients and of the observation's data.  In Cox
regression, the score is _also_ a function of a random parameter  that
depends on who is in the observation's final risk set.
