Description has a behaviour of flattening out the result. this behaviour of is highly confusing while working with nested arrays and the work around for it (by making the return of the callback a single item array is hacky to say the least)

it would be helpful if takes an optional argument to override this default behaviour and return a nested array, if this parameter is set.

Example and test cases :

The existing behavior is exactly what we want for our internal use. Although this method is exposed for others to use, we don't want to add features unneeded by core since it adds to complexity, size, and run time. A more featureful implementation could be done as a plugin rather than added to $.map.
