Let .html() take multiple arguments like append()

Let .html() take multiple arguments like append() does. Obviously I can use append() or prepend() after the html() call, but it's probably more efficient to do it in one function.

I can't simply string-append the html since it's jquery objects that I am inserting, not pure html.

Since .html() is intended for string html arguments it seems strange to use it this way. When the args are strings you can just append them together, so allowing multiple strings doesn't seem to offer anything. You can always just .append(jq1, jq2, jq3) if you have multiple jQuery objects.

probably more efficient

Internally .html() often uses .empty().append() so I doubt it is slower, but you could write some tests.
