Yes, indeed, the bootstrap in its original form becomes unwieldy if you try to work it into the weighted data. That's why there are different commands to handle the weighted situation. They have limited functionality from the perspective of the classical bootstrap regarding features that don't make sense outside of i.i.d. situation (e.g., no BCa corrections).
