get_children() displays drafts by default

Was working with get_children and noticed that it was displaying some draft pages. According to the current documentation (http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_children) the default is "any" for post status:


(string) Any value from the post_status column of the wp_posts table, such as publish, draft, or inherit; or the keyword any. Default: any

I believe it should act like get_posts --- the default should be "publish" for posts and "inherit" for attachments.

Attached is my diff with the fix...

basically I removed the $defaults setting of 'post_status' => 'any'... and I let get_posts handle the logic.

Should either be committed or wontfixed. This sounds like it could break things.

Yeah, in my opinion, it would only negatively affect people/places that are trying to get draft children and are using the default 'any' status. Pragmatically, I can't imagine why anyone would want that as default behavior... but I'm only looking at it from my use cases.
