Haven't looked at your patch, but vim stores the inserted keystrokes
(not text - it'll happily let you repeat an inserted sequence of
backspaces that deleted over the beginning of the insertion region,
arrows that moved the cursor, etc) in a read-only register named with
the period character. Pasting it with ^R. or ^A in insert-mode plays
back the keystrokes and adds them to the text which will be in the
register the next time you leave insert mode. I don't know offhand if
this register is used for the . command or not.
