Shape Layer Repeaters with Selectors (the kind in text animators)

Shape layers could really use some love. I propose that the same way we add selectors and properties to Text Layer animations, should be used for Shape Layer Repeaters.

Draw a square, repeat it 10 times, now add a range selector with position and scale. think of the cool mograph type effects you could create with that system, The best part, is that Shape Layers and Text Animators are practically cousins, so I don't think it would be to hard to implement.

Bonus would be to also have the same path options that Text layers have as well, imagined if you could repeat along a path!!!!! so many possibilities.

Also wiggly and expression selectors would open up so many new doors.

Its been brought to my attention that this would need to be a "new repeater" as to not have comparability issues. "Repeats" could be a property, so could "path"

It'd be great if Repeaters also had a time offset option. A lot of the time I'm copying layers in the same way as a repeater just so that I can offset a simple animation

Couldn't time offset be handled with the expression selector? there are text animations that do that using it.

This would be HUGE. And to my mind at least, doesn't seem like it would be hard to implement. I could be very, very wrong about that but it seems to me that each instance of a Repeater would just need to be treated as if it's a Character in a piece of text, and voila! Instant effector-based animation inside of shape layers.

I don't understand how this hasn't been implemented. Apple Motion version 1 (2004) had this right out of the box.
