Is there some way to do this XPath expression with java (not XPath, if XPath
then I would want to use 'keys') so it will return me an object that I can
add a child to:


which basically means:

out of all the elements (//*), not just immediate children, give me an
element that has an 'id' attribute (@ denotes an attribute) that matches the
value of the variable ($ denotes a variable) '$id'
