I mean my future reimplementation.

Don't worry about it: it's a problem for me, as of now.

It changes the place where the loop happens, yes: insteads of calling
repeat repetitively from repeat itself, it's called repetitively from
the toplevel command loop.

It's not for simplicity but for correctness (several corner cases fail
to work with read-key/event/char).

I did not understand that from your answer and I'm very surprised, since
AFAIK this part of Emacs hasn't changed significantly.  In any case I've
only tested it under Emacs-23 (yup, that's a 3 there).

Your characterization of what works and what doesn't makes no sense to
me (based on my understand of what the code does, and based on my
tests), so I used the code that I know to work and I understand why.

Since you say it doesn't work for you, please follow my advice:

   Please confirm whether or not it fixes it
   for you, and if it doesn't, please show me the values of
   `repeat-repeat-char' and `evt' in the above test.

because without that info from your tests, I can't help you much further.
