Obviously it was not obvious to me.  I somehow assumed that
the for-loop had the same semantics.

 I think it's all Stéphane Bidoul faults :-), he added support
for iterator at the Python level. 
 Since usually people have more trouble walking a tree in document
order than a simple linked list, his choice is probably what helps
Python users most, even if it's not obvious at a syntactic level
that the semantic recurses down the trees.
