Michael is not doing anything wrong; -xtlogit, fe- is ignoring the -from()-
option.  This only affects fixed effects -xtlogit-.  This bug will be fixed in
the next ado-file update.

-xtlogit, fe- is a wrapper for -clogit-.  In the meantime, Michael can work
around this problem by calling -clogit- directly:

. clogit foreign weight length, group(mpgg) from(b, copy)
