Thanks.  My concern is that is seems too easy to get around the weight
restriction in -bootstrap- and therefore must be wrong. 

Searching through the Statalist achieves I came across a posting by Jeff
Pitblado ( ) on
using a very similar trick to get -statsby- to accept weights.  At the end,
he cautions, 

	"As a final note, let me just warn against using this trick with -
bootstrap-,-permute-, and -jknife-.  The result will most definitely 	not
be what you would expect."

I guess I don't understand bootstrapping well enough to understand why this
trick does not work as expected.
