I wonder whether it is possible to have dual help files open simultaneously when help is called for a command?  The two help files could be: the official help file for the command and a user-written help file.  I would like to create a user-help file that has additional examples and references, comments or warnings that I want to make sure I remember, references back to specific Stata listserv items or Stata online documents, etc., that help me use the command.  It would great if both help files opened when help is called.  I'm thinking along the lines of an additional file extension (like .sthlp or .hlp) specifically for user-written files, like .apdx (appendix) or .sup (supplement)
