That's a good point. Your search would have to branch out at each
element match as you worked leftwards in the selector, one branch
moving leftwards in the selector and one branch continuing the
search as if there was no match.

It sounds like fun. :) I wish I had time to work on it. It would
probably take me several months, though. ~_~
