Yes this does almost do the trick, but with one annoying feature.
It changes the state back to TODO immediatly after it is done so
it still shows up in my agenda as a TODO item. So it looks for me like
I never have done my repeating items, and I have to check the date to
be sure.

But it is perhaps difficult to make it change state later on?

It could be fixed with a more advanced custom agenda command i guess.
