For my epidemiological analysis I use the packages Epicalc and Hmisc – 
among others. Both packages allow to assign variable labels that will 
appear in the output of the respective packages’ own functions. The modes 
of storage of the labels in a dataframe are very different. I am 
wonderiung if there is a function that would allow to easily convert 
Epicalc labels to Hmisc labels and possibly the other way around. 

Unfortunately I am not adept enough in R to write such a function myself.
