Error in Selector raises exception $('$something')

jQuery is raising an error when using selectors which say $('$something'), instead of $('#something').

I know in this case the code itself is broken, but I am wondering whether jQuery is supposed to raise an error in this case or not.

jQuery intentionally raises exceptions on invalid selectors to make it finding and correcting broken code easier.
