Would be very handy, for example Mapserver supports this feature


The label will be repeated on every line of a multiline shape and will be repeated multiple times along a given line at an interval of REPEATDISTANCE pixels.
The associated RFC document for this feature is MS RFC 57: Labeling enhancements: ability to repeat labels along a line/multiline.
