$.ajax(): pass 'settings' object to 'success' callback

I'm finding I want to pass data to the complete callback quite often, and I've seen the question come over IRC a couple of times as well. Currently I have this solved by using $().ajaxSuccess, but using the success callback would be neater.

'Current way' of doing it:

$.ajax({ ..., mydata: data});
$(document).ajaxSuccess(function(event, xhr, settings) {
  if (settings.url == ...) { // check for right ajax request
    alert(settings.mydata); // do something useful instead

It would be much better if the settings structure was passed to the complete callback as well:

$.ajax({ ..., mydata: data, success: function(data, settings) {

Possibly pass the XHR object as well to make the functions more consistent with the $.ajaxXXXX callbacks. Ofcourse this would apply to the 'complete' callback in much the same way.

Seems I've been dumb. You can just use 'this' to access the parameter object passed to $.ajax from the callback. That really should be in the $.ajax() docs though.

The settings hash is now received by the handler, and (at least now), the docs mention the this.
