Thanks. But suppose somebody had specified something like -vce(cluster clustervar)-? Or had explicitly specified -vce(oim)-? I don't want to zap anything the user has implicitly or explicitly specified. Rather, in the absence of any implicit or explicit declaration of vce, I want the default to be robust, not oim.
