Yeah, I chewed on that too, but I don't see a better solution.  The semantics
of repeated R are different, too (per the recent $history thread, it entails
differing sequence numbers), so I think once that's the case, then it's
not all that much more confusing if the significance of a repetition has
different semantics too.
