	-- Check if the transcluding page is cascade-protected.
	--
	-- Only pages transcluded from a cascade-protected page appear in
	-- CASCADINGSOURCES, so normally we would not be able to tell if the lockbox
	-- itself is cascade-protected. To work around this, we generate a
	-- transclusion from the lockbox to itself, so that it will have an entry
	-- for itself in CASCADINGSOURCES.
	--
	-- We cannot generate this transclusion using the title object for the
	-- parent title (the lockbox), as if the lockbox is transcluded on another
	-- page, we will generate a transclusion *from* the lockbox *to* that page
	-- as well, and the page will be cascade-protected. Instead we generate it
	-- with the title object for the current title.
	--
	-- When the current title is the parent title (i.e. we are rendering the
	-- lockbox page), this creates the required entry in the link table in the
	-- database. When the current title is the grandparent title or up (i.e. we
	-- are rendering a page transcluding the lockbox), transclusions are only
	-- created from the page itself, not from the lockbox, and it is not
	-- cascade-protected.
	-- 
	-- This creates an extaneous self-transclusion for all pages using the
	-- module, but we treat that as a necessary evil.
	--
	-- XXX: there seems to be no way to check for cascading protection using a
	-- Scribunto API, so we have to use frame:preprocess with the
	-- CASCADINGSOURCES parser function.
