Ah, I forgot about this for a moment. :-)

Anyhow, I implemented a traverser:

<https://trac.neo4j.org/browser/components/neoclipse/trunk/org.neo4j.neoclipse/src/main/java/org/neo4j/neoclipse/search/NeoSearchQuery.java#L149>

Bad things about this implementation:
* only works with EmbeddedNeo, not RemoteNeo (well, simply not the 
NeoService interface)
* some abuse of Java variable arguments (or?!)
* using a deprecated method in EmbeddedNeo (but hey, it shouldn't go away!)
Good things:
* clean
* fast
* uses less memory
* no need to find all matches and put them in a list

I left the old checkNode() method (not used any more) for now.

WDYT?
