Thanks to David for this suggestion. I have added it to my wish-list folder for UKSUG 2011. There will doubtless be more wishes to be added in the coming year between now and the meeting. (The date isn't finalised yet, but is expected to be about a year from now.)

Best wishes

While you are at it, Roger, please ask for a [x|y]line(###,
[front|back]) option so that one can overlay control lines on an area
filled plot without resorting to a cumbersome -pci- or pcarrowi- plot.

Thanks to Scott for this solution, which I have forwarded to my colleague.

It seems a bit surprising that Stata does not seem to be able routinely to
locate axes in the interior of a graph region, instead of at the boundary of
a graph region. After all, lots of people might want to plot the complex
plane with axes intersecting at (0,0i). However, StataCorp may decide to fix
this, when they have time to spare from the innumerable other things they do
for us. I might raise it at the Wishes and Grumbles session of the 2011 UK
Stata User Meeting, if they haven't fixed it by then.
