The Session.itemExists() and Node.hasNode() calls are roughly
equivalent in performance. If you already have an ancestor node
reference, then using Node.hasNode() with the relative path is
probably a bit faster.

The main performance gain from itemExists() or hasNode() as compared
to methods like getNode(), is that they don't need to load the node
state of the referenced node, just the node states of all the ancestor
nodes which are typically already cached in memory.
