On Wikipedia, my signature was a little long, so i
decided to make a subpage of my user page for it, and
just set my sig to display that. Unfortunatley due to
the template maximum this means I can only display my
signature 5 times on a page now.
Since the 5 instance maximum for a template on a page
is meant to make sure that the templates cannot recurse
on a page, why not just make it such that a template
cannot call a template that is an ancestor of it? ie,
cannot call itself, cannot call a template that called
it, etc. This could be checked for during each page save.
This would allow as many instances of one particular
template as were necessary on a page without having to
worry about recursion.
