1 for both, ie. so that it can check its own output.

Can anyone come up with a valid use case where recursing to depths > 1
is required?  What about the prohibiting even the first self-check case?

If "no" and "no", no config option is needed.  If "no" and "yes", then a
boolean config option would suffice.  I tend to think that no option
would be sufficient.
