This could mimic oneway and twoway -tabulate-. I don't think it's a very
attractive idea personally, but the main point is that Stata offers you the
tools to do it yourself. 
Same reservation: very little tested. 

program jmptab 
	version 8.2 
	syntax varlist(min=1 max=2) [if] [in] [fweight aweight iweight] [,
*] 

	qui foreach v of local varlist { 
		tempvar clone 
		clonevar `clone' = `v' 
		label var `clone' "`v'" 
		local clones `clones' `clone' 
	}

	tab `clones' `if' `in' [`weight' `exp'] , `options' 
end

I don't think there is such an option, but this is programmable. Just clone
the variable in a temporary variable, strip it of its variable label and
fire up the command. Strictly you need a new variable label that is the
name, but the effect is as you wish. 

Rough demonstration sketch, largely untested: 

program jmptab 
	version 8.2 
	syntax varname [if] [in] [fweight aweight iweight] [, *] 
	tempvar clone 
	clonevar `clone' = `varlist' 
	label var `clone' "`varlist'" 
	tab `clone' `if' `in' [`weight' `exp'] , `options' 
end

Is there some option in tab that presents the real name of a variable
instead of the label attached to it? Something alike -tab varname, nolab-
used to present a tabulation not using the values label.
