If this was indeed possible, the rule that the stub cannot be longer than 4
characters would require Stata to cut your value labels short, if they
happened to violate the rule.

If you wanted the variable label as the prefix, appropriately abbreviated:

***
sysuse auto, clear
xi i.rep, prefix(`=substr("`:var la rep78'",1,4)')
***

Is it possible to have xi incorporate the value label into the new
stub instead of the number?
