Allow sub-section of form to be serialized

Description

Often I need to do partial form submissions (for inline AJAX lookups). The built-in serialize() and serializeArray() methods will only work when applied to the <form> itself, and not to sub-sections of the form.

Adding this behaviour would be great and mean I don't have to roll my own serialization code!

$('form *').filter('.foo').serialize()

As the comment above says, just serialize whichever elements you'd like.
