I tend to prefer dynamic state (calculating the #children on the fly)
to this kind of static approach (where you have to make sure to keep
that dictionary current), as long as there aren't performance reasons
for it.  So I don't think I would want that as the default, but it
would certainly be one reasonable way to implement #children for a
subclass of Component.
