st: Can -bootstrap- handle vectors

Hi Statalisters,

It seems to me that -bootstrap- cannot handle vectors?  Is this
correct?  If so, does anyone know if there is a way to use a loop to
send each element of a Mata vector to a separate Stata local so I can
bootstrap the vector element by element?

Sample code is below.  All help greatly appreciated!

capture program drop my_vector
program define my_vector, rclass
	syntax varlist
	mata: m_my_vector("`varlist'")
	return list
	return add

capture mata mata drop m_my_vector()
void m_my_vector(string scalar varlist)
	real matrix data, data_cov
	st_view(data, ., varlist)
	data_cov = variance(data)
	st_matrix("r(v1)", data_cov[., 1])
	st_numscalar("r(v11)", data_cov[1, 1])

sysuse auto, clear
my_vector price length weight
di r(v11)
matrix list r(v1)

bootstrap r(v11), reps(200) seed(13082011): my_vector price length weight
bootstrap r(v1), reps(200) seed(13082011): my_vector price length weight
