Maybe Im missing something but it seems like Belangour is asking not how to 
get to the literal foo code he has as an example but instead how to test any 
node for existence of a child node in a given context...

<xsl:for-each select="persons/person">
     <xsl:if test="child::tel">
          .... insert code

child::tel will bring each 'person' node into context if it has a child node 

replace the node names with the names of the actual nodes you are trying to 
select and you will get the same results...
