Proposed chunk: rEPT

Henrik Andersson
I am proposing a new chunk. The purpose of it is to track how an image
may be repeated (tiled).

An image can be repeated by tiling it to draw it on a larger viewport
without scaling it.

What would need to be tracked is just two flags, duplicated two to
account for x and y separately.

The first flag is if the image can be repeated in the given direction.
The second flag is if the image should be repeated using reflection.

Reflection means that the image will be mirrored every other repetition.

Overall, this only requires four bits, which easily fits in an octet.
