      the path to item will "/root/item".

      Node paths have not to be unique (two nodes can have the same name
      and be brothers). A node can also have an empty path if it has not
      a name, or if it is a child of nodes that have not a name. I.e.
      data nodes and comments have not a path.

   /** Find one or more with specific characteristics.
      This function returns an iterator that iterates over all the nodes below this
      one that matches the given criteria:
      -# Having node name equal to the \b name parameter.
      -# Having an attribute named as \b attrib parameter
      -# \b attrib attribute having value \b valattr
      -# \b data being a substring of node data.

      In case one or more of the elements is to be ignored, it just set the corresponding
      parameter to an empty string (""); if all the parameters are set to an empty
      string, the iterator will iterate over all the nodes below this one.

      The search is done deeply: all the nodes below this one that matches the search criteria
      are returned, regardless of their level and distance from this node.

      In example, to search for all the nodes named "mynode" having the word "good" in their
      data, perform the following scan:

         MXML::find_iterator iter = currentNode->find( "mynode", "", "", "good" );

            std::out << "Data inside node MYNODE: " << endl;
            std::cout << (*iter)->data() << endl;

      \todo add a flat find iterator.

      If the find is unsuccesful, MXML::Node::end() will be returned.

      \param name Node name to search for or "" to ignore this parameter.
      \param attrib attribute that the searched node must possess, or "" for none.
      \param valatt value that attribute attrib must possess, or any value in the
         attribute list if attrib is ""; set to "" to ignore.
      \param data a substring that must appare in the node data; set to "" to ignore.
      \return an iterator that will return all the nodes that match the critria in
         turn or end().
