There is nothing stopping you from programming this yourself as an
ado-file if you're that desperate for it.

The -vec- command is implemented as an ado (see -which vec-) which you
could copy to your local ado-path as vec2.ado and hack away at to get
what you want.

If you succeed it would no doubt be useful to submit -vec2- to the SSC archives.

This is likely how the "open source" software that you refer to
(presumably R) has such functionality.
