#18848: Filter post listing screen by post parent

 It's not possible to filter a post listing screen by post_parent. This
 would be super handy for hierarchical post types (eg. Pages) where you may
 have several levels of hierarchy and want to view only the descendants of
 a particular page. I'm not sure that we need a UI (eg. dropdown menu) for
 it, but a working URL query var would be great.

 I made an attempt at patching this a while ago using the child_of
 parameter but it got complicated quite quickly, so I'm putting it out
 there as a feature request in case anyone feels like tackling it.
