Brad is talking about 'repeating-linear-gradient' looking odd when the 
background tile is not rotated. To achieved that, you need to rotate the 
background tile but then that bring up the new issue of how keywords 
work for rotated background tiles along with how they are used (will be 
used) with keywords with gradients.
