If I understand the code, this part of the jQuery API isn't supported, which breaks a jQuery plugin I'd like to use in a mobile project with Zepto:
(and probably many other plugins as well).
Is there a reason this isn't supported, or am I missing something?
No particular reason. I didn't even know that API exists (haven't seen it in the wild)
implement `$('...', properties)` functionality
I've given this a shot (see referenced commit in a separate branch) but I'm still not convinced that this should be in core. I'll leave this open until the time of the big 1.0
support $(html, attributes) syntax for element creation
Attributes should be an object with HTML attributes, including special
attributes such as "text", "html", "val" and other.
