If they are children of a component you already have access too, you will need 
only the relative path names. The receiver has the parent's path and can 
therefore construct any child path.

The connection name will also be the same as the parent's.

Assuming you don't need all children but just those which are containers 
themselves and those with content, one of the output parameters of children() 
could be a property map.
Something like
"visible" -> "true|false"
"hascontent" -> "true|false"
"haschildren" -> "true|false"
