I've been vaguely planning to extended -bollenstine- to work after
-sem-, but since the need for it has not yet come up in my own
research projects, I have not done it. It will probably boil down to
few interface-to-saved-results changes, such as taking the appropriate
returned matrices from -sem-. This is a low priority work for me,
something of "do-it-on-a-plane-if-you-dont-have-anything-else-to-do"
kind. At your own risk, you can look into -bollenstine.ado- code to
see where it takes the implied covariance matrix from, how it forms
the call to -confa- (which would need to become a call to -sem-) and
modify it accordingly.
