If I had a better idea than device and inode matching, I would have 
implemented it already by now (or at least filed a bug). Recursion limit 
does not work; we tried before. The old value, 5, was too much to 
prevent explosive recursion, and yet too low for some real use cases. 
Besides, what component would enforce the recursion level limit with the 
new model?
