This was proposed before by Bob to support XPath.  I seem to recall he
had started to work on implementing it.  I could dig the archives, but
it's Saturday and phooey.  :-)

A problem with this is that our String representation of text can't have
a getParent() and that's a bit unfortunate but not (imho) unfortunate
enough to switch to having a Text class.
