Jason, I completely agree with your reasoning in this message.  I even
feel (strongly) that getChild() is better than getChildElement().  But
why do you refuse to acknowledge the third option, getElement()?

This project needs a third-party candidate!  For too long we have
suffered with the false choice between Brettocrats and Huntericans.

Your campaign managers said you would debate anywhere, anytime!  

Oh no, wait, that wasn't you.  It wasn't me, either.

OK, back to taking a nap.
