I am reminded obliquely of one users' meeting in which Bill Gould as StataCorp President underlined that there often comes a point where other software is better suited to doing what people are asking to be possible in Stata. "After all", he said, "you wouldn't expect Stata to include a complete integrated word processor, would you?"

"Great idea." "Yes please!" "When we can expect it?" 

was the flavour of the response.

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- ;).
