Comment (by leflo):

 Scalability: Ok, I changed it a bit, now you only get that query if you
 really need it (descendent_of, ancestor_of), and parent_of has its own
 query now. Anyhow, that query isn't expensive (at least for < 500 pages
 and espacally in contrast to the query for get_pages('')), the other
 option would be to do n queries (n = depth) or do some very tricky SQL
 substatements (which would kill all MySQL 4 support). (Could it be better
 to use get_pages('') since it is/could be cached?)

 Walker Classes: Why? I don't really walk the tree, it's more like zipping
 through a list.
