Unfortunately the patch as described there won't have the desired effect - it'll cause many more change events to fire (when we don't want them to). I'm not sure if this is something that we're going to focus on fixing right away. I'm keeping it in mind, though.

This code won't work properly because it checks for attachEvent first. In IE9 and Opera both attachEvent and addEventListener exist; jQuery uses addEventListener for that case.
