Thanks for the feedback and questions, everyone. I’ll try to get to them all in time, today’s going to be a little crazy around the office, though, but I’ll do what I can.

One quick response in regards to selector performance, right-to-left, context vs. .find(), etc.: this jsperf example runs through various methods and in almost all browsers (Opera being the lone exception), .find() outperforms other selectors.

Caveat: all methods get obliterated by native JavaScript (see revision 69 of the same test for proof – I created rev 70 and removed the native version just to make the graph readable), but still.

@Andi: yes, those two methods will generally yield pretty similar results. Using .find() for me is more force of habit than anything else.
