The behavior of the last example is strange, and probably unwanted,
where it runs more color-stops *inside* of the starting-circle.  It
makes it basically impossible to have an image start with a
solid-color starting-circle.

It appears that the radial-gradient repeat case is done by shifting
the center and growing the radius by the absolute difference between
the two original circles, then the stops are just spammed into the
open space at the percentages specified.
