Subject Re: neighboring node

Indeed, that's exactly what I did to come up with next and previous siblings
(I wasn't using same-name siblings for other reasons).  It would have been
nice to have some sort of shortcut to avoid iterating over all siblings.

I notice that NodeIterator has a getPosition() method - if that position
were available to the node itself, one could skip() directly to the previous
and next siblings via the NodeIterator from node.getParent().getNodes().
