Issue: StructGet() doesn't support array notation when referencing an XML object

See blog: http://blog.cfaether.com/2018/08/coldfusion-member-functions-for-xml.html

-----------
Observation 9:
StructGet() does not support array notation when referencing an XML object. So, StructGet() needs fixed to support array notation when referencing an XML object. Repro: https://trycf.com/gist/baa6a4aeeec368e6567efe5cf827ee4c/acf2018?theme=monokai
-----------

Repro:

{code:java}
<cfxml variable="myXMLVar"><myXML><a b="c">d</a><a>e</a>f</myXML></cfxml>
<cfscript>
  myStruct1 = structGet("myXMLVar.myXML.a")
  try {
    myStruct2 = structGet("myXMLVar.myXML.a[1]")
  }
  catch(any e) {writeOutput(e.message)}
  writeDump(myXMLVar)
  writeDump(myStruct1)
  if(isDefined("myStruct2")) {
    writeDump(myStruct2)
  }
</cfscript>
{code}


Actual Result: Array notation in XML StructGet() throws "An error occurred while trying to add an XML node to an element."

Expected Result: Array notation in XML StructGet() works.
