As is often counseled on this list, outreg is not being supported. You should switch to estout (findit estout) as it provides much greater flexibility, and its author is very responsive to any reports of concerns.
When a program is no longer being updated and the authors are nowhere to be found, would it be legit to add a note to that effect to its description on SSC, e.g. something like

"NOTE: This program has not been updated since 2002. Users may wish to consider -estout- as an alternative."

I suppose you want to be careful about bestowing blessings on some programs as opposed to others; but on the other hand a note like this might save some people a lot of time and frustration.
