Implementing XPath stuff, I'm finding the native use of Strings
possibly problematic.



Select all text-nodes who have a parent element of <foo>.
(I think, I'm still new to XPath).

By the time we eval the predicate, we're currently holding just
a List of String, which doesn't really allow testing any

I'll be the first to admit I might be doing a naive implementation
of XPath, but at least for the code I've got, a Text providing
getParent() would be darn handy.
