In this thread,  Alexandru Cojocaru <scojocaru(at)gmail(dot)com> 
and Jeph Herrin <stata(at)spandrel(dot)net> discussed 
the implementation of mixed models where there is a variance
component at the observation level that has a known value
for each observation.  (Jeph also refers to these as "V-known" 
models.)

These models are very popular in the area of 
meta-analysis, and they can be fit in Stata by using
the new -meglm- command with constraints.

An example, which also explains the equivalence that
Jeph points out, can be found in the Stata documentation
for mixed-effects commands, available on-line at:

http://www.stata.com/manuals13/me.pdf
See example 6 on page 26.
