There's no reason to keep it as is, but I don't know how to fix it!

I am working with the core keyboard objects and I noticed that when the
key auto-repeats, these objects ([key], [keyup], and [keyname]), send a
stream of alternating 0's and 1's. I think that the correct way to do
auto-repeat would just be to send out 1's for each repeat event, rather
than alternating 0's and 1's. The current condition makes it very hard
to use the keys in their held state.
I would like to file a bug report, but I am wondering if there is any
reason to keep the current behavior. Attached is a patch that
illustrates my point.
