Right now, we can detect a loop ( where there is a A->B->A
relationship), but we can't report it cleanly. This is because these
loops typically involve multiple people, and are usually caused be
selected the wrong person of the same name.
So, if we would typically see something like:
A->B->C->D->A->B->C->D (and looping back forever)
The problem is we can tell where the mistake was made, because we don't
know your family tree. We just see a big circle of people.
