Insert last insertion (is there an equivalent to Vim's `C-a`)

In Vim, C-a (an insert-mode mapping) inserts the last insertion, which is sometimes very useful.

Is there something similar in Kakoune?

<a-;> allows you to escape to normal mode for one key.
So I expected <a-;>. (two keys) to do this but that fails with

repeating last insert not available in this context

so it’s not supported yet but it should be possible to add (in C++)
