Walter, sorry for the confusion.

$W('foo') returns a wrapper of "id='foo' element".
`wrap` then wraps the original element with <div class="bar"></div>
and returns a wrapper around this newly created element (class=bar).

An analogy with our current way of doing things would be:

$('foo').wrap('div', { className: 'bar' });

You can see how it looks almost identical (or fully identical if we
were to use `$` as a wrapper helper). The only difference is the
internal implementation.
