Sebastian,
   You would need a method of formulating the prior distribution
and its hyperparameters.   If you wanted to use a noninformative
prior you could set one up on sspace using a diffuse prior.   
   You could  try constraining the means and variances for the 
C and G matrices in sspace. 
   Otherwise, you might have to resort to WinBUGS using Stata.
            Regards,
                    Robert
