For flexibility, there needs to be a walk that generalizes preorder,
inorder and postorder as well as handedness of the walk.
The user should be able to specify a left-side visitor, a bottom visitor (that
can be aware of how many times the bottom has been visited to deal with
non-binary trees), and a right visitor.
In addition, a traversal should be able to be either left handed or right handed.
The traversal should be able to stop after meeting some precondition and return
a reference to the node stopped at.
Finally, the traversal should be able to be started at any node in the tree.
