Well after success with my first recursive template I was all set to

<out>'s must be sorted alphabetically, regardless of <option> order.

I'm not sure why you are using recursion ... I hope the following helps. BTW, I think your desired output count was wrong for the third item.

Here is a version that uses keys ... there was no need to use the variable method of grouping and for big data sets I believe the answer below will be a lot faster.

I hope this helps.
