it is unclear what you think you need to change in Emacs to get what you
want, but it appears that you have not tried to increase the values of
`max-lisp-eval-depth' and `max-specpdl-size'.  I suggest you try that and
see if you can do what you want to do.  I think it is safe to assume that
the average user would prefer to have Emacs error early on an infinite
recursion in the making rather than recurse very deeply.  after all, none
of the distributed packages recurse very deeply.
