$.Deferred helper methods to resolve/reject

TL;DR the only way to change a failure to a resolution and vice-versa is to return a new promise. This is different from the promises/A spec (for good reason, I feel) but still is cumbersome to work with. I propose either:

$.Deferred.resolve(value); // returns a new, done promise with value
$.Deferred.reject(value); // returns a new, failed promise with value


since $.when already does this for synchronous content, create $.unless that takes any number args and only succeeds if all of them fail.

On my own projects, I have something as follows:

$.each( [ "resolve", "reject" ], function( methodWith, method ) {
    methodWith = method + "With";
    $[ method ] = function() {
        return $.Deferred()[ methodWith ]( this, arguments ).promise();
} );

// Later on
promise.then( function( data )
    try {
        return doSomething( data );
    } catch( e ) {
        return $.reject( e );
} );

Not sure if they should be in core but we could use some Deferred-related plugins for sure.

Not a fan of $.Deferred.resolve, I don't see the gain compared to $.Deferred().resolve.

Any thoughts on $.unless, jaubourg?

Also, my mistake for not noticing then would work with a deferred and not just a promise, so $.Deferred().resolve(value) would be ok, albeit still a bit verbose.

I don't think we are looking to add features, let's focus on Promise and see how we can integrate it. This can be done as a plugin if desired.
