I asked this some time back. One dark side of doing this is that it *can* result in unwanted/inappropriate failures. In practice though, Dolphin's limits on the stack has been a good thing.

Subject: [Pharo-project] Infinite recursion
Yesterday I got into an infinite recursion, because of adding an ordered collection into itself. And #hash is defined in terms of its containees, hehe.
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?
