I'm generating a large number of graphs, all of which are
horizontal bar graphs:

  graph hbar var1 var2, over(group)

My problem is that several -group- category labels are quite
long, so that the figure is compressed to the right to make

Ideally (that is, rather than chopping down and/or footnoting)
there would be a way to wrap these labels into two lines. Since
each -group- value has two bars, there is plenty of space for
two lines of text; however, I cannot find a way to wrap the
text, even if I manually break it up into fragments. Any

By the way, I have tried shrinking the labels:

  graph hbar var1 var2, over(group, label(labsize(small)))

but this doesn't solve the problem (and doesn't look very good).
