...
dear listers,

I want to use -nlcom- on a nonlinear combination of marginal effects 
computed for a tobit regression.
I understand that -margeff, replace- (ssc des margeff) is supposed to 
handle that.
However, to me it seems that -margeff- spits out the coefficients rather 
than compute marginal effects on the "expected value of dependent variable 
conditional on the dependent variable being observed", as the help 
suggests.

Any ideas?

margeff, at(mean) model(tobit) replace;
tobit weight2 price rep78 headroom trunk, ll(0);
 // I would rather expect -margeff- to report:
mfx compute, predict(e(0,.));
