st: Duplicates order tagging

Hello,

If I have a set that contains the following values:

	letter
1.	A
2.	A
3.	A
4.	B
5.	B
6. 	C

I can use .duplicates tag, g(freq) to generate a count of the duplicates:

	letter	freq
1.	A	3
2.	A	3
3.	A	3
4.	B	2
5.	B	2
6. 	C	1

But I would also like to generate an order variable (e.g., " order") that
increases for each successive iteration of the variable.  Such as:

	letter	freq	order
1.	A	3	1
2.	A	3	2
3.	A	3	3
4.	B	2	1
5.	B	2	2
6. 	C	1	1

Is there an easy way to do that?

Thanks,

Ben
