Being a Stata user in transition to R I have to say that it would be
fair to mention that data handling for large amounts of data might
take an extra step in R.

I understand that there are good reasons for R consuming more memory
(than Stata) when handling large datasets, but it is necessary to warn
the potential newcomers that they might require using MySQL or other
database managers if they use large datasets.
