feature request: context parameter for .is

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps/2011OctDec/1454.html observes a similarity between Element.matches and jQuery.fn.is, with a gap from our method's lack of a context parameter. Adding the two-parameter signature would fill in that gap, both increasing (future) standards compatibility and fulfilling the bulk of #10868.


  • jQuery(element).is("~ selector", sibling)
  • jQuery(descendant).is("selector", ancestor)
  • jQuery(child).is("> selector", parent)
