I have two comments. 

1. Your program specifies Stata 8, yet requires -levels-, 
which was added to Stata as an official command on 
16 April 2003. Thus your program will fail for any users 
who have just the minimal requirement you specify, unless 
they also installed -levels- as a user-written command. 

You could save yourself, and Statalist, error reports
by insisting on Stata 8.2. That is, apart possibly from a few 
people with major firewall issues, anyone with Stata 
8 should be able to -update- to Stata 8.2. Also, anyone with 
Stata 8.2 will have -levels-. 

In Stata 9, -levelsof- is the name used. However, 
-levels- still lurks in the official files, although
users should not presume that will be the case 

2. Your help files mentions "referees" on Statalist. 
It's a detail, but I think an important one, that 
any comments transmitted via Statalist are just 
informal. Nobody "referees" anything else. 
Just in any case anybody misunderstands that, 
please change the wording.
