Any page output by “check” would include the header field and the value would
be the level of the recursion; regardless of which instance of “check”.

That is, when “check” is processing e.g. yahoo.com it will set it to “1”. If
you click the «/referer» link “check” will be processing its own output, which
will contain the value “1”, and will increase it in its own output to “2”.

So two separate copies of “check” will see each other's recursion level and
increase it. In fact, it would be hard to prevent them from seeing the other's
recursion level; but they could of course have different settings for maximum
allowable recursion depth.
