This would break things like:

$.when( [ 1, 2, 3 ] );

Inspecting the first element only wouldn't make sense either.

You can easily code your own whenArray functionality if and when you're tired of apply:

jQuery.whenArray = function( array ) {
    return jQuery.when.apply( this, array );
};

A "deep" when could be nice though but that's another conversation.

    1 This would be super nice, because $.when.apply($, promisesArr) looks ugly.

    33I'm not sure if there's a case where you'd want an array to be treated like a resolved Deferred that this would break – if so, maybe you could peek at the first element to see if it's a promise?
