Nick--
Looks like the original code is here:
http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2003-07/msg00917.html
but I have never tried to estimate a censored ordered probit, and I
strongly suspect convergence will be difficult to be confident of.
It looks like Owen just adapted that original code into an ado for his
own use, and I don't see any further development,
but I am guessing Maarten Buis will have some input on this
problem--wasn't his dissertation research related to this problem?
(see what I did there?  we call that passing the buck in this country)
