Wow.  I wish I would have come across that file before.  After browsing through that, I'm pretty sure many graph issues that people have (myself included) could probably be cleared up with additional documentation in this area.  If you've not checked out the presentation, it's very worth it and the graph of ocean currents and outline of Alaska is definitely a good illustration of Stata flexing it's muscles.
