At the German UGM in June, during "Wishes and Grumbles", I requested a table
providing a one-to-one mapping between the old -adjust- syntax and the new
-margins- syntax to give credence to the assertion in the (version 11.1)
help for -adjust- that

"...the margins command can do everything that adjust did and more". So
let`s hope it will materialise...

Margins is powerful but complicated. I've heard lots of people say they haven't figured it out yet. Even if they would be redundant, I wish the -adjust- and -mfx- commands would be updated for Stata 11. Saying that only -margins- is needed is sort of like saying you don't need commands like -regress- and -logit- because you've got -glm-. Breaking a complicated command into simpler, specialized pieces has a lot of value, in my opinion.
