Expanding a Matrix with Repmat/Reshape?

I have two vectors:
x = [3 6 7 10]
y = [2 2 2 4]
I am trying to create vector
z = [3 3 6 6 7 7 10 10 10 10]
So each element x(i) is repeated y(i) times. This is straight forward with a for loop, but I'm trying to avoid looping, if possible. The size and values of x and y may change as well (they are populated by variables).
Here's the loop version:
z= [];
for i = 1:numel(y)
z= [z, repmat(x(i), 1, y(i))];
Any help is appreciated.

z = cell2mat(cellfun(@(x,y)repmat(x,1,y),num2cell(x),num2cell(y),'Uni',false));
But this just hides the loops in the background.

If you're using release R2015a or later, use repelem.
x = [3 6 7 10];
y = [2 2 2 4];
z = repelem(x, y)

Here's a truly loop free method,

x = [3 6 7 10]
y = [2 2 2 4]
z = repelem(x, y);
Or if this is the bottleneck of your code, try FEX: RunLength:
Z = RunLength(x, y);
