Something that goes into the same direction and I had several use cases over the years is to match something x levels down in the tree structure and you know the exact number of levels. Could that be covered by this, too?

Using @tabatkins' syntax that could be done by `.foo /x/ .bar` where x is the number of levels the right side of the selector is separated from the left part.

So for example, `.wrapper /3/ .child` applied to @radogado's structure 

```html
<div class="wrapper">
    <div>
        <div class="child"> </div>
    </div>
    <div>
        <div>
            <div class="child"> </div>
        </div>
    </div>
</div>
```

would match the latter `<div class="child">` because it's three levels down.
