These functions provide access to the children of the given XML node. The simple accessor returns a list of child XMLNode objects within an XMLNode object.
The assignment operator (

children of the node to the given value and returns the
updated/modified node. No checking is currently done
on the type and values of the right hand side. This allows
the children of the node to be arbitrary R objects. This can
be useful but means that one cannot rely on any structure in a node
an object of class XMLNode.
