Subject: [PATCH] org-imenu-get-tree: Allow parent headings to be selected

Imenu only allows leaf nodes to be chosen.  In programming language
buffers, non-leaf nodes are "virtual" nodes, i.e. categories like
"functions" or "variables" rather than actual locations in the buffer.
But in Org buffers, non-leaf nodes are headings, which the user may
want to select with Imenu.

So now, for a non-leaf node (i.e. headings that have children), we
push an extra item to the result, without including its children, so
that it can be listed and selected in Imenu as a leaf node.
