basic filter pseudo-selectors function strangely when used with .parents

Color-prefixed selectors always search 'down' the DOM tree (toward leaves). In some instances this may be incorrect, such as within the .parents function.

For example, elem.parents(sel :selected) will return a selected option tag whose parent select node is a parent to elem matching the selector, instead of selecting a parent node which both matches the selector and is selected.

Here's some code:  http://jsfiddle.net/dw6zP/

This is the expected behavior. Positional selectors (like :first, :last) behave differently from other selectors (like :first-child, for example).

Landing pull request 491. Fix #7322. Make .is() with a positional selector work like delegated event logic. Fixes #7322.
