I wonder what depth of include-file nesting psql can support, or whether we'll be able to fix it to optimize tail recursion of an include file. Because somebody will be asking for that if this is the toolset you give them.
I think the solution to that is straightforward: tell users that we hope to eventually support loops and that in the meantime if you try to work around that with recursion you get to keep both pieces when it breaks. While not ideal I think that's a lot better than throwing the whole idea out because some people will abuse it...
