Well, attached a patch to limit the redirects. I'm just unsure before 
committing: One can use

RewriteOptions MaxRedirects=n

to change the limit (also during a redirect, seems to make sense for me 
anyway). In contrast to all the other mod_rewrite config stuff it's 
inherited all the time regardless of the RewriteOptions inherit setting. Is 
that behaviour okay or should we respect the inherit option here, too?

Just FYI: my little testsuite. Put the following into the document root 
directory container ... (after applying the patch ;-)

RewriteEngine On
#RewriteOptions MaxRedirects=20
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule (.*) / [L]
