No, I was only trying to point you to #12, the part of the message where I
mentioned such a `repeat-command' function.

Of course.  `repeat-command' is a general function and entirely separable from
the rest of what was discussed in that mail thread.

Sorry for side-tracking you.  I was not trying to revive that discussion, but
only point out that I already proposed this function (and so yes, from my point
of view it could be included in Emacs).

As I said, I use `repeat-command' a lot, myself.  So I know that it can be used
in different contexts that are unrelated.

And the fact that it is not in Emacs means that I end up redefining it in
different files.  No big deal - it's short.  I do likewise for things like
`remove-if'. ;-)  (No, not trying to revive that debate either.)
