 We originally had them as radio buttons. You can see a part of the
 discussion in the posts about 8 weeks ago. (Just posting letting you know
 to have a little background..)

 Here's a snippet:

 [comment:54 dd32]:
 > > background-repeat-options.diff adds 2 radio button options to repeat
 horizontally and vertically.
 > 4 radio buttons might be stretching it a bit in terms of width of the
 option. I'll attach a patch which uses a select instead in its place.
 > It would be nice to preview the tiling of the image too, Right now, the
 image is an {{{<img>}}} to allow the full image to be shown in the preview
 (instead of only the 10% (or so) which fits into the div).

 Having said that it is a UI decision and the patch is now there thanks to
 John so it should be up to the UI team... I think I am happy either way. I
 can see 4 radio buttons being too much but I can see the select being out
 of place with the other options.
