DOM manipulations on elements not in the DOM

The following works:


The following fails:


The former works because jQuery.clean wraps the created elements in a div, but the div is never removed. Wrap, insertBefore, etc. should probably be updated to work on elements not in the DOM.

If you think it's necessary, you might want to create another ticket to have jQuery.clean remove the extra wrappers it creates.

Now it seems like this should be pretty easy. When doing the wrapping just skip the "append to parentNode" step. The element will still be disconnected from the DOM - but that's ok since that's what the intent was.

This was fixed in 1.3, actually.
