Could you come with an example use case where such a feature would be wanted? I really don't see the need for yet another repeat option...

@lvlo
I think this can already be done through gnome-schedule (a GUI for cron).
It is in the repo try it.

@johannes
i use this feature to update my world-weather wallpaper every hour.
