sorry for the bad grammar. I didn't investigate the StackLess Python,
but as I have been reading about it (so if it was correct), the
recursionlimit should not be the problem using StackLess Python.
>From my expirience with python and recursions, it works well to the
depth of about 200 to 500 (depending od algorithm and purpose). I
think that in this case it should work well with about 500. If you
need a bigger string, then lett it repeat and merge the different
You could also generate multidimensional hash.

Best Regards
