Hehe, simplicity!

I was wondering why the "eval" was there anyway. Be omitting it (or by
extra-quoting the arguments) you lose the ability to pass multiple
commands to repeat(), like this:

repeat 5 "echo \"You have to press enter 5 times.\"; read"

If this was intended, indeed every call to repeat() must be fixed.
