Option to disable adding the underscore timestamp parameter to script src

I'm trying to append a DOM element of a script with a given 'src' attribute, but jQuery always intercepts that and adds a timestamp parameter. This makes the script's source URL look like


when running

$("<script src='http://judstephenson.com/api/Quotes/Realtime/AAPL/json/callback'<" + "/script>").appendTo("body");

This breaks the API, and it would be awesome if the automatic timestamping could be disabled.

The timestamp is added to prevent caching. You can easily turn that off by setting ajaxSetup cache option to true:

Yes, pbcomm is right.
