add jQuery.support() option for hidden fields receiving click from label

Could a jQuery.support() option be added to determine whether or not clicking on a label with a correct "for" attribute will pass the click along to the checkbox or radio input? I've run into the issue a few times and the workarounds tend to be messy (or cause double .change() events to fire).

I think the hardest part would be making up a name for the option, so I suggest 'label_clicks_hidden_field'.
