st: Accumulating results under -simulate-

I am -simulate-ing a routine that returns numerous parameters of (at least
potential) interest:  99 right now (11 coeffs x 9 aspects of estimated
sampling distributions...)

The example under -help simulate- is comparatively homely:  only two
parameters returned, as scalars, e.g.,

". simulate mean=r(mean) var=r(Var), reps(10000): lnsim, obs(100)"

(Both -mean- and -Var- are -return-ed as scalars in the program called
under -simulate-.)

Is there a more elegant way to do this?  For example, can I -return- to
-simulate- one (or more) matrixes?  If nothing else, this saves me a
statement with 99 iterations:

-b11=r(b11) b12=r(b12) ... b21=r(b21) ... b99=r(b99)

Merci par avance!
