Description (last modified by john)

The W3C spec has a currentTarget property on "e" that is effectively the same as the "this" variable inside jQuery event handlers. All browsers support it, except IE.

The event fixer creates the currentTarget property if it doesn't exist, but it currently overrides the handler to pass "this" in as a second param. It would be nice if jQuery did that by default (for a cost of 5 bytes)

But since jQuery already passes the context properly is currentTarget really needed?

I agree with Brandon - the current solution is feasible.
