add mutation events

It would be very nice to be alerted whenever an element is appended to another element. This is different from the .live functionality, in that you could execute arbitrary code in response to an element being appended, not just attach an event handler. I need to perform dynamic resizing on elements once they are attached to the DOM, and this would make it very clean to implement.

summary: onAppend event handleradd mutation events

Adding mutation events are likely to significantly impact the overall speed of the library, so you are probably better off using a plugin like liveQuery if you really, really need them. If you want to submit a patch, and it doesn’t cause a serious performance hit, we will investigate it for inclusion.
