Should we just go ahead and expose webuse via the datasets namespace? I don't see how we could be violating a copyright by providing a way to download publicly available data.

I don't see any problems with copyright or license.
The only thing, I think, is that they could set up the server to require a request from Stata. It's unlikely that this will happen if we have cache enabled.


👍 I spent quite a bit trying to remember the name webuse, searching for it in the docs, only to realize it was undocumented, but somehow made it into someplace online already.
