Thanks to Clyde and Martin for the correction. -label copy- was indeed
added during the lifetime of Stata 10. I stopped reading when I found it
mentioned in the help explaining what was new in Stata 11.

See -help whatsnew-, item 26, for the update of "25feb2008":

"26.  New command label copy has been added, which allows a value label
to
be copied to a new name."

Nick Cox says:

3. In Stata 11, but not previously, -label copy- is the way to copy an
existing set of value labels under another name.

But, as the following output demonstrates, -label copy- also works in
version 10.1:

. version
version 10.1

.
. capture label drop _all

.
. label define test 0 "test0" 1 "test1"

. label list _all
test:
           0 test0
           1 test1

.
. label copy test test_copy

. label list _all
test_copy:
           0 test0
           1 test1
test:
           0 test0
           1 test1
