Add execute() to jQuery core

Description

I think there should be a jQuery function similar to .globalEval(), but instead of evaluating code in quotes, it executes a function passed to it. Instead .globalEval() could just be extended to execute a function instead of evaluate a string, if a function is passed to it, in the global context.

Wow, I think I have something called exec() in my collection of code.

If you already have a function reference, you can call it on the global object by passing null to call or apply. How does adding a new jQuery function help this?

14 days of inactivity causes a bug to be automatically closed? What the fuuuuu? Could someone with permission please re-open this?

If a bug is returned to the reporter for more information, like this one was, and *then* there is a fortnight of inactivity, then yes, the ticket is automatically closed. If you can provide an answer to the question that was posed:

"If you already have a function reference, you can call it on the global object by passing null to call or apply. How does adding a new jQuery function help this?"

then we can perhaps investigate this enhancement further. I tend to agree with snover though, I am not sure what the purpose of this would really be.
