My driving reason is to let jquery developers use unittest for their
unit tests as I like it a lot as a test suite. Without noConflict, the
jquery app will need to use its noConflict setup, rather than
Prototype using its noConflict setup.

Fixing prototypes "critical" namespacing conflicts - the $() - method
seemed a solid, clean approach.
