  in-order traversal
  post-order traversal
  pre-order traversal
      Processing nodes in a graph one at a time, usually
     in some specified order.  Traversal of a tree is recursively
     defined to mean visiting the root node and traversing its
     children.  Visiting a node usually involves transforming it in
     some way or collecting data from it.
     In "pre-order traversal", a node is visited __before__ its
     children.  In "post-order" traversal, a node is visited
     __after__ its children.  The more rarely used "in-order"
     traversal is generally applicable only to binary trees, and is
     where you visit first a node's left child, then the node
     itself, and then its right child.
     For the binary tree:
         / \
        I   S
       / \
      D   E
     A pre-order traversal visits the nodes in the order T I D E S.
     A post-order traversal visits them in the order D E I S T.  An
     in-order traversal visits them in the order D I E T S.
