Dear Maarten,

  Thanks for the answer. I did ask the same question two months ago
and refered to your paper. And I used _b[atrhoij:_cons] to calculate
rhoij. But using athrho to calculate rho could be tediously long when
mvprobit is involved with more than 4 equations. So I ask the question
again to see whether there is an easier way to get the variance and
covariance matrix at once. I think the e(rhoij) make things easier,
even though I do not directly get the whole matrix and still need to
use e(rhoij) to build the matrix.

Moreover, less than two months ago you asked exactly the same question
and you received an answer:

I am somewhat annoyed by this.
