Recursion limit: a good idea to ignore?

Hello, I've written a potentially inefficient algorithm to combine multiple joined polygons into a single one. On large plots I get the warning "$RecursionLimit::reclim: Recursion depth of 256 exceeded." and a bunch of errors because of this. Now, should I try and re-write my program (the speed of it is not entirely critical) to avoid recursion or is it "okay" to locally remove the recursion limit for such code? I'll try and post an actual example of my code once I've tidied it up a little. Many thanks, Will
