Currently, when speaking repeated characters, NVDA simply truncates any repititions after the first five characters. For example, if 10 dashes are encountered, this will be announced as 5 dashes only. This gives no indication of how many repititions actually occurred. It would be more useful to announce the number of times a character occurred if there are more than a certain number of repititions; 2 repititions is probably ideal. For example, two dashes would be announced as "--", but three dashes would be announced as "- 3 times".

This patch is a proof of concept implementation.
Change from the spec above:
In hindsight, this idea may be more trouble than it's worth. :)

This is already fixed in the new code for #332. On further reflection, I think indentation needs to be handled separately.
