 worksforme as we've had a change in behaviour somewhere along the line.
 Published pages are always published and viewable irrespective of their
 descendants' status, and permalinks work as expected and are no longer

 A published page called 'child' with a draft parent page called 'parent'
 will generate a permalink of example.com/parent/child and it's accessible
 as expected. The parent page at example.com/parent will generate a 404 for
 visitors. I think this is expected behaviour.

 (Note: Mark's comments about workflow are valid but I'm not sure this
 workflow is common enough to warrant a change IMO. Probably plugin
 territory if people want that sort of behaviour.)
