    Unfortunately such checking is not possible with rules.

    But it actally gave me an idea. What if there was 
"ArchiveBlockTooDeep" that would mark archives that go over 
recursion limit same way as encrypted archives when 
"ArchiveBlockEncrypted" is set.

    For some reason I thought, that built in support for treating zip 
files as folders in Windows had problems with recursive files. But 
that does not appear to be the case. Unfortunately.
