.parentsUntil, .nextUntil, .prevUntil methods

Per a conversation with John, I made this change:

Added jQuery.fn .parentsUntil, .nextUntil, .prevUntil methods (and unit tests). Modified and jQuery.dir to support an additional argument. Fixed existing .parents and .prevAll sorting. Fixed broken .parents unit test.

Note that this does include an actual bug fix, which I commented on here

Either way, I hope this is helpful!

I've seen the usecases for nextUntil and prevUntil a lot. Such as a DL where you have multiple DDs for a given DT.


But I've never myself seen a usecase for parentsUntil, nor seen another developer with a situation where it could be useful.

I agree that parentsUntil's utility is arguable.. but still, it's only 68 bytes minified, and its inclusion in core saves a gigantic amount of work should anyone need it.

Besides, it makes coloring arbitrary boxes really easy!
