Oracle has a recursive SELECT - it reminds me of a glider pilot's
description of why a helicopter flies "It's so ugly the earth repels
it." There is a recursive select in the standard which is different and
may be less ugly. But Firebird doesn't implement that yet. Recursion
was possible in GDML and the engine still has everything necessary to
support it.
