Yesterday I got into an infinite recursion, because of adding an ordered
collection into itself.  And #hash is defined in terms of its containees,

Why I did that? It doesn't really matters. I was testing a little project
I'm doing for the University.

So I came into an infinite recursion, which didn't stop until the VM run out
of memory...  And the question is.. Shouldn't it throw an error like a stack
overflow when we run into those cases?
