Is it possible that USE_RECURSION_LIMIT isn't defined for my RH
builds?!  I added the attached little bit of (seemingly useful) code to
_sre.c, recompiled and then...

% ./python
Python 2.3.3a0 (#4, Nov 21 2003, 13:39:39) 
[GCC 3.2.2 20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import _sre
[24546 refs]
[24546 refs]
[24546 refs]
[7129 refs]

Very odd.
