outerSize() on input with type=hidden should be 0

This is the commit in question:

JSfiddle example:

When setting a padding on INPUT, this css rule gets taken into account when using outerWidth() on input elements with type="hidden".

Browsers don't seem to honor padding on hidden type inputs when rendering the page so this seems like a bug to me!

I should add, this broke jquery ui layout plugin for us ( and the obvious workaround is to create a css rule to set padding to 0 on input[type="hidden"]

The change was made so we might provide useful values for hidden elements, rather than just 0. This is a big help for our users. It doesn't make as much sense with hidden inputs, but it is worth the tradeoff.
