Is is possible third parameter to be added to str_repeat().
In case in the string there is a name of a variable and it is of type array the following code :
foreach ($some_arr as $k =$v){
  $output .= '<some_html>...'.$v.'....</some_html>';
to be in one line
$output = str_repeat('<some_html>...$some_arr ...</some_html>',count($some_arr),REPEAT_SUBSITUTE);

better will be done with :
$a = array("one", "two", "three");
$s = "[text]";

echo str_replace(array('text'), array_values($a), str_repeat($s, 10));

but this doesn't work.
So, reclassifying as feature request for str_replace().
"str_replace() should behave differently when string is used as [search] and array is passed as [replace]".

Pollita, any comment on that. If that will break BC, then we will "won't fix" this.

oops, didn't notice this was assigned to me.

I don't see that breaking BC since the current behavior is to convert $replace to a string if $search is not an array, hence str_replace('search',array('re','place'),'search my search for a search') would be a new condition to be handled.

The only behavior I see this breaking is those who expect the above to return 'Array my Array for a Array' (which is a pretty esoteric behavior), would now get 're my place for a re'

If you can get a concensus from php.internals, then it shouldn't be terribly hard to implement.
