Stata's facility at extension by users is a great asset and your program is very nice. However, it's tough for my students---who are using a network install and who therefore lack permissions to install components from ssc or elsewhere easily---to get at it so I don't tend to push the add-ons too much. 

However, from a code standardization standpoint, Stata's openness can be... disconcerting. If I were a regulator (as opposed to an academic), I'd be cautious.
