Nothing in the existing API, although it is possible. However, I feel that
this would be more suited for a generic iterator/range adaptor library
instead of being embedded in the core interface. The new RangeEx library, I
believe, should help you there. You can take the full range of children
(actually, I plan to add iteration over the children with a given key),
filter on the key, then add a transform iterator that extracts and converts
the value.
