Default Perpetual Check

Is Perpetual Check in the Chess rules, or is it really a subset of the
3-move repetition draw?

Perpetual check without repeating the position sounds like a challenging
and probably interesting task for problem composers.

Supposing such a position could be found though, the resulting play
would eventually come up against the 50-move rule.

Provided that a capture can be made every 49 moves the theoretical limit
for such a game can be made quite a bit longer.

I wonder what is the longest perpetual check puzzle position?

Exactly, captures and pawn moves, by black or white, plus repeating
positions twice as often as possible, but never three times. But they'd
run out eventually.

The sort of thing one would expect to read about on Tim Krabbé's
website, but afaik that particular problem has not been addressed there yet.
