[thelist] Help me testing a helper object for DOMscripting

Following the earlier discussion here about reading the next sibling
element of a current element and making sure it really is an element
and not a text node (line break), I decided to add a small helper
object to my upcoming JavaScript book that takes care of some of these

Give it a try:

- Is that something that really can help save beginners frustration
about different browsers and DOM oddities?
- Is it pretty bullet proof?
- can you think of other methods that should be in there?
- how high would the sea level be if there weren't any sponges?

I promise to add a greeting, should you come up with something I
forgot or find out I did wrong. I don't get free copies though :-)

I am aware that there are a lot of libraries already out there, but
most of them are just too massive to use in a beginner book.
