Hi guys!
Here's a comment I have wanted to make for a while:

I herewith request new features for the codim>0 entities.  In particular
I'd like (at least)
- HierarchicIterators
- father()
- subIndex()/subEntity()

This stuff is direly needed when doing Mortar methods, but you need
it also to properly implement Dirichlet boundary conditions on
irregular (read non-unitsquare) domains.  I've developed quite a
few hacks to circumvent the problems, but the elegant solution requires
the above features.

That being said, I also strongly support Robert's feature request.
