I can use the OS X key mapping to make a "New Do-file," but that is as close as I can get. It's one of the few nuisances I have with Stata for the Mac.

I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to do, but I presume you've got several do-files open in different windows, and want to go directly to one of them (e.g., the one you were editing last).  One option, of course, is to use tabs (rather than new windows), in which case the file you were editing last will be the active tab.  However, not everyone likes tabs, and sometimes you need multiple windows (e.g., if you want to compare two different files side-by-side).

If you're using Lion, note that Stata works nicely with App Expose.  This will show you all of your open Stata windows (including any open do-file windows), allowing you to go directly to the window of your choice.
