Does it really eliminates cycles in include graph? I don't know the
code but is it ok when john.conf includes john.conf, and even with
recursion level restricion will be processed four times? Maybe it
would be better to just have table of processed filenames, and before
processing next included file seek it in table. This way we don't care
about recursion level.

I am just asking.
By the way, I wanted to implement that feature but you were faster,
good for you :)
