not exactly ... the 1000 frames recursion depth is used by devel ...
iirc miller's version is limiting the recursions by stack size ... so
it would depend on the objects ...

but a construction like:
for (int i = 0; i != infinity; ++i)

is an iteration, not a recursion ... so there is no limit (except the
speed of the machine) ... the |until| object is working this way ...
