Code Inspection: Tail recursion

Reports tail recursion, that is when a function calls itself as its last action before returning. Tail recursion can always be replaced by looping, which will be considerably faster. Some JavaScript engines perform this optimization, while others do not. Thus, tail recursive solutions may have considerably different performance characteristics on different environments.
