I don't understand. It's just in a while-loop. While would it overflow
the C-stack?

Hmm.. I don't know how useful that'll be given that you can't control
the order of next() elements...Which leads right back to my desire for
an ordered link-list datatype. Perhaps you could expose enough about
the next() linking behavior of tables to give determinstic ordering.
