Possible incorrect dataType is set in .get()

Looking at this section of code:

	get: function( url, data, callback, type ) {
		// shift arguments if data argument was omited
		if ( jQuery.isFunction( data ) ) {
			type = type || callback;
			callback = data;
			data = null;

		return jQuery.ajax({
			type: "GET",
			url: url,
			data: data,
			success: callback,
			dataType: type


            type = type || callback;

Should this be:

type = type || type = callback;
or just
type = callback;

Do I miss something?

Thanks for great work!

It's playing safe with the parameter hockey there, in case someone passed null in the callback arg rather than leaving it out. So these are all equivalent:

  .get(myurl, null, myfunc, "JSON")
  .get(myurl, myfunc, null, "JSON")
  .get(myurl, myfunc, "JSON")
