Agreed. Repeating radial gradients may be useful.

An ending-circle is necessary if you're going to support repeating radial gradients, which I think we should. -moz-radial-gradient supports them, and they're pretty cool.

We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all." [Isaiah 53:5-6]
