Dear Rob,

You can save a lot of time by using qreg2 (from ssc) which gives you
standard errors that are asymptotically equivalent to those obtained 
by bootstrap and, unlike the ones produced by qreg, are valid under
heteroskedasticity and misspecification. 

You can find more information about this in my webpage.

All the best,
