Do you know where these are defined? And are there any other such
useful globals that we can use? I need to document them in the
testing cookbook, because I keep looking for them, and then
eventually redefine them over and over again...

Personally, I think it's fine to have a small self-contained
testcase that deals mostly with scoping vs recursion. I actually
like it better that way, but I know people may prefer it the other
way. My opinion for liking smaller testcases is that it's usually
easier to reproduce the problem: You don't have to sort through
a lot of unrelated stuff that happens before the problem occurs.
