It was a pleasant suprise to see some of my code cited.

I take it that the generate-id() is needed because there is no other
way to test for node identity?

Rather than using concat() to generate a compound key, would it also
work to use the same key as before but then select from the resulting
node-set only the circuit-breaker with the right parent?
