RE: Recursion

There's a ton of recursive functions floating around out there.
Here's a dumb example that you can:

var x = 0

function addIt() {
  alert('x is now ' + x)
  if (x < 10) addIt()

Apparently you cannot nest a function statement in 
another statement or in itself. 
I guess this looks pretty gloomy for anyone wanting recursion - or am 
I missing something... any way around this?
