Right. If the intended usage of USE_RECURSION is only to activate it
when looking into SRE bug reports (to see if the bug goes away when
this is activated), it might not matter that it blows up the stack.

The question at hand is what to do with patch 813391: accept, reject,
defer? I was hoping that we can reject it as outdated, but perhaps
it is not outdated.
