use getElementsByClassName in selector engine

It would be nice if new versions of jQuery made use of getElementsByClassName, now that Firefox 3, Opera 9.5 and Safari 3.1 all support it. It could lead to huge performance gains on class selectors.

Looks like this is satisfied by the Sizzle integration in 1.3. Feel free to close it, as I can't.

Yep, fixed in Sizzle and landed in jQuery.
