That's a good idea.  Though I'm worried about tricky corner cases I
may not have thought of.

So far I've written 7 little tests for the additional axes, and they
at least provide a sanity test.  (If anyone is curious, they're in the
Kawa CVS repository in gnu/xquery/testsuite/TestMisc.java along with
a bunch of other XQuery tests.)
