My point was that the dream of the ease of using C-x z z z z... fades
when meeting zap-to-char.  Your proposal of using

J> C-x ESC ESC runs the command repeat-complex-command

means C-x ESC ESC RET would have be typed each repetition, 4 vs. 1
keys for each repetition, if we were able to use repeat to ... hold on
a second... of course: a a a a a a a a a a a a a C-a <escape> z a C-x
<escape> <escape> <return> C-x z z z z z z z z z z z OK, never mind.
However maybe the documentation to the "repeat" command should mention
this technique to handle cases like zap-to-char.
