Hey Austin, Spencer, Paul and Michael:
Wow, thanks for the rapid response all.
Clearly I just had a mental block on that one. I did a regex search across the codebase using "SELECT.*?WHERE.*?post_parent" and nothing came up. I missed get_children() because it delegates to get_posts() and I don't know why I didn't thing about querying that way. It's so obvious now, doh!
