Right, I can loop over the node list and quit when I hit the next subhead,
but how do leave the context of the level-2-container and then have the
higher-level process (the process-children of container1) take up where
I've left off and not take up with the sibling following the SubHead, which
is where I would expect it to resume, as the subordinate process-node-list
won't, as far as I know, affect the process-children processing.
