I didn't think you can use this sort of construct to check for ancestors, 
just parents ... at least not without node regular expressions, and OpenJade 
doesn't have node regular expresions.  In XPointer-speak I need:

(element (note//paragraph) (some-function))

but "note//paragraph" is not accessible.

[Of course given LISP verb, subject, object grammar that should be 
(element (// note paragraph) (return-some-value))
