Preserve children when deleting elements

Reported by: kkaefer Owned by: flesler
Priority: major Milestone: 1.3
Component: core Version: 1.2.6
Keywords: Cc: kkaefer
Blocked by: Blocking:

It is sometimes necessary to preserve the children of an element and just delete the element itself (e.g. when you wrap/wrapInner an element and want to get rid of the wrapper). This patch adds a removeThis() function to jQuery.

You can do that manually when needed. Is not a commonly needed feature/addition.
