hm, I'm afraid this is not why repeaters are there,
this sounds more like a case of selection-list with radio styling...

see the samples form1.xml and form1_template.xml for the field 'cowheight'

- in the model you define it as a field with a nested selection-list
- in the template you just add styling list-type="radio"

explanation: if you talk about a repeater, then you think about some 
kind of a 1-M relation between the form and the various widgets inside 
the repeater.  In this case you just want ONE value, so you only want 
one widget. The fact that the selection-list is presented as a set of 
radio-buttons is a styling only issue. (at least according to the 
filosophy of cforms)
