#5686 closed enhancement (wontfix)

$.map is not consistent with $#each, $#map and $.each

I notice that with $.map, both the function parameter order and "this" reassignment is inconsistent with other enumerable methods, such as $#each, $#map and $.each. Attached is a script showing how this can make for easy mistakes.

I think it would make more sense to have the function passed to $.map take (index, element) instead of (element, index), and also reassign "this" to the current element worked with. Unless, there are specific technical reasons for the API to work in its current fashion.

It may not be consistent, but there is probably a lot of code that would break if this was changed.

There is no way to fix this and maintain backward-compatibility.
