       "DocSet::NavigateCache" navigates the cache created by docset objects
       during their scan stage.	Once the navigator handle is obtained, it's
       possible	to move	between	the nodes of the same level, using the next()
       and prev() methods or going up one level	using the up() method. the
       first() method returns the object of the	first node on the same level.
       Each of these methods returns a new "DocSet::NavigateCache" object or
       undef if	the object cannot be created.

       This object can be used to retrieve node's meta data, its id and	its
       index node's meta data.

       Currently it is used in the templates for the internal navigation
       widgets creation. That's	where you will find the	examples of its	use
       (e.g. tmpl/custom/html/menu_top_level and

       As "DocSet::NavigateCache" reads	cache files in,	it caches them,	since
       usually the same	file is	required many times in a few subsequent	calls.

       Note that "DocSet::NavigateCache" doesn't see any hidden	objects	stored
       in the cache.

       META: to	be completed (see SYNOPSIS meanwhile)

       o   new

	     DocSet::NavigateCache->new($cache_path, $id, $rel_path);

	   $cache_path is the path of the cache	file to	read.

	   $id is the id of the	current	node. if not specified the id for the
	   first item (0) is retrieved.

	   If the docset is empty (no items) new returns undef.

	   $rel_path is	optional and passed if an object has a parent node. It
	   contains a relative path from the current node to its parent.

       o   parent_rel_path

       o   next

       o   prev

       o   first

       o   up

       o   down

       o   index_node

       o   meta

       o   id
