pgfkeysearch – This package offers a way to find keys in a given path 'recursively', unlike pgfkeysvalueof

The command \pgfkeysvalueof unlike other \pgfkeys commands, doesn't have a .unknown handler, or offers the option to search for a key. That's exactly the aim of this, by having a way to find a key in a given path (or collection of paths).
