Unused variable "rnonword"?

Reported by: Owned by: rwaldron
Priority: low Milestone: 1.5
Component: core Version: 1.5rc1

Upon looking into jQuery 1.5 RC1 source I noticed a variable called "rnonword" which doesn't appear to be used throughout jQuery, I have also checked the trunk and it doesn't appear to be used there either. Is this a mistake or is it used?

I notice that rnonword was used to check for non-word characters on line 180 of the source in jQuery 1.4.4 but you're correct in saying it's nowhere else to be found after its defined in 1.5. It's quite trivial to remove and should be safe to get rid of before we finalize the 1.5 release. I'll keep this open as a reminder.
