Make .trigger() accept varargs to event data

Whenever I need to pass aditional parameters to .trigger(), I always feel that I could pass those as separate arguments after the event name, and not always as an array.

I'm not sure about backwards-compatibility issues though.

You're right. It is a back-compat issue.

Consider this case...

$elem.trigger('click', [ {}, {} ], [ {}, {} ]);

or worse...

function awesome() {
  $elem.trigger('click', arguments, [ {}, {} ]);

To keep it simple, we've come to recommend that extra arguments always be passed in an array.

I agree, haven't thought about that.

It's not really a big issue actually, just 2 extra chars.

But thanks for the attention!
