I don't count myself as an ardent supporter -- our recursive behavior
as it exists today has never gotten in my way. It's mildly annoying
that commit's use of non-recursive is the only place in our codebase
where that means depth=0 (everything else is depth=1). And I
certainly can see merit in the ternery depth state. But do these
necessitate immediately improvement? I doubt it.

This is wise.
