the documentation for jQuery(selector, context) says:

context
Type: Element or jQuery
A DOM Element, Document, or jQuery to use as context

However if a string is used (e.x. $('#foo', '#bar')), jQuery still performs $('#bar').find('#foo') successfully.

The documentation should be updated to reflect this behavior, along the lines of:

context
Type: selector, Element, or jQuery
A string containing a selector expression, DOM Element, or jQuery to use as a context

Just because it works doesn't mean it's supported. It's intentionally not there.
