Make selectors work across iframes

I propose to add navigating through iframes for the immediate next version of jQuery. That would basically allow you to do stuff like $("iframe div") and fail gracefully on iframes you're not allowed to access.
Although I never worked on the selector engine, implementation seems quite easy - a initial test showed that adding something like
at line 232 in selector.js would do the job (probably not in all cases though). I personally think it would be a very valuable addition, and I can see quite a few usecases in jQuery UI.
