      Description

      Looking at the code for the closure generator, I notice that it only fails for an infinite loop with it reaches 20 levels. Shouldn't the infinite loop check based on when the parent and child shows up as a parent later on in the loop. I am attempting to build a closure table for an MLM company distributors.

      It would be nice if the error could actually be an error instead of a way to leave the loop, or that I can define how many levels I wish to traverse.
