Can a Nokogiri NodeSet not be searched? There is a #search method but
it doesn't seem to work as I would expect it too.

  require 'nokogiri'

  xml = Nokogiri::XML <<-EOS
    <root><x><m id="a" class="q">dummy</m><n id="b" class="q">dummy</
n></x></root>
  EOS

  nodeset = xml.search('.q')

  p nodeset
  <m id="a" class="q">dummy</m><n id="b" class="q">dummy</n>

  p nodeset.search('#a')
  => nil
