IIRC, the SIG decided to use the mapping that emerges from the Python
CORBA mapping, which would be ._get_parentNode().  Or was this
decision changed later?  See the SIG's archives for November 1999 for
the relevant threads.

PyDOM hasn't been updated because it seems pointless, since it'll be
dropped in favor of 4DOM.  (BTW, send me an e-mail about that; we
should resume discussing how to do the switchover.)
