Support ShadowRoot Nodes in Sizzle

Reported by: tj.vantoll Owned by: timmywil

Currently ShadowRoot nodes cannot be used with Sizzle: http://jsfiddle.net/tj_vantoll/5RBxm/

ShadowRoots are DocumentFragments, but they have the additional methods so adding support for them might not be that bad: http://www.w3.org/TR/shadow-dom/#elements-and-dom-objects

I'll take a stab at this whenever I get the chance.

This appears to be a dupe of http://bugs.jquery.com/ticket/13342. Comments on that bug suggest that:

  1. Shadow DOM wasn't sufficiently available across the different browsers to rise to the level the jQuery team felt comfortable supporting it.
  2. The exact semantics for what operations should and shouldn't be allowed on a shadow root weren't clearly defined.

FWIW, that bug references a pull request (https://github.com/jquery/jquery/pull/1149) with more commentary.

Thank you for the reference. We were actually aware of that bug, but we decided to open a separate issue for Sizzle support.
