Thanks for the presentation, Richard. Nicely done.

I will punt this request to Stata (who claim to monitor the listserve). 

Perhaps Stata can add a gen() option to -margins-, especially if they intend
to phase out -adjust- in a future version

Hardly anything disappears forever in Stata. If nothing else, you 
could probably add a -version 10- command to the top of your code. 
Also see slide 29 of 
for an example of how to compute adjusted predictions and marginal 
effects for individual cases using Stata 11 or 12. A -gen- function 
for margins is on my personal wish list.
