That's funny: When I suggested to save the effort of implementing SVARs
in gretl because already "there are tools for this" (namely Jmulti), you
didn't find the argument so convincing...

All I'm saying is, if you agree that those kinds of datafiles are
widespread (and I would say they are given the BLS evidence) then it
would make a useful feature; and if the effort to implement such an
option is not very big, then please consider it.

thanks,
sven
