It seems to me the complaint was not that -version 7- (or whatever) did not magically recreate 7 in its entirety.

Rather that a program written under 7, with an appropriate version statement, now no longer runs. Isn't the whole point of -version- to prevent that?

experience the totality of Stata 7
is to use Stata 7.
