I did have that sense. However, I should point out that
a prior -decode- is not necessary here, as you can look
up the label on the fly.

forval i = 1/10 {
 	xtline ... if id == `i', subtitle("`: label (id) `i''")
}

I'm reading the manual on -encode- and -decode-
and it solves in a simple manner things I've been taking the long way
around previously.
