You should expect -esttab- to produce the output that you would later
\input{} into your main LaTeX file, which you can customize in any way
you would like. In the version of -esttab- that I have, there's option
-page(packages)- that allows one to add packages to the preamble. But
with all due respect to Ben Jann, I am not expecting him to write the
whole paper for me within -esttab- ;).
