Is it possible to repeat back to the level above, from inside a conditional or split block? 

For example:

@startuml nested_repeat

title Nested repeat?
footer Version 2022-08-11

start
' Repeat back here to Step 1
repeat

:Step1;

if (ok?) 
  ' Repeat back to Step 1 from inside condition? or split?
  repeat while (retry <= $limit) is (retry++)
else 
  :Step2;
endif

:Step3;

end

It seems to only return "Cannot find repeat" but perhaps there's some way to do it.
