Well then, I would like to see it (or something like it) be put back  
in, to make this proposal more widely usable, and to help satisfy a  
larger demand (without having a separate proposal for "dash-parts"  
that is almost identical). What about about a keyword that makes the  
entire pattern into a repeating pattern, instead of just sections of  
it? like { border-parts: 20px 10px 0 1fr, repeat }
