-twoway lfit- was not intended to support time-series operators,
but the documentation is silent on this point and the error
message when operators are used is admittedly poor.

Regardless, support for time-series operators will be added to 
-twoway lfit-, -twoway lfitci-, -twoway qfit-, and -twoway qfitci- 
in a future update.

In the interim, anyone wanting to user time-series operators
with these -twoway- plottypes can use Jorge's workaround.
