My pc at home has Stata 7,  and at the office I use Stata 8.  I often forget 
to specify "saveold" when moving data from the office to home.  Is there any 
way to tell Stata 8 to always save data sets as Stata 7 (make saveold the 
default)?  I know this may seem trivial, but I think it would be a useful 
feature.  If this is not possible, would there be disadvantages to adding such 
an option?  
Finally, if I have data in Stata 8 format that I need to open in Stata 7, is 
there a way to do so (in an emergency:-))?
