	Usage Note:
	-----------
	Do not use both ajaxSubmit and ajaxForm on the same form.  These
	functions are intended to be exclusive.  Use ajaxSubmit if you want
	to bind your own submit handler to the form.  For example,

	$(document).ready(function() {
		$('#myForm').bind('submit', function(e) {
			e.preventDefault(); // <-- important
			$(this).ajaxSubmit({
				target: '#output'
			});
		});
	});

	Use ajaxForm when you want the plugin to manage all the event binding
	for you.  For example,

	$(document).ready(function() {
		$('#myForm').ajaxForm({
			target: '#output'
		});
	});

	When using ajaxForm, the ajaxSubmit function will be invoked for you
	at the appropriate time.

 *	  <input name="B" type="checkbox" value="B1" />

 *	  <input name="C" type="radio" value="C1" />
 *	  <input name="C" type="radio" value="C2" />
 *  </fieldset></form>
 *
 *  var v = $(':text').fieldValue();
 *  // if no values are entered into the text inputs
 *  v == ['','']
 *  // if values entered into the text inputs are 'foo' and 'bar'
 *  v == ['foo','bar']

 *
 *  var v = $(':radio').fieldValue();

 *  v === undefined
 *  // if first radio is checked
 *  v == ['C1']

 * The successful argument controls whether or not the field element must be 'successful'
 * (per http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/interact/forms.html#successful-controls).
 * The default value of the successful argument is true.  If this value is false the value(s)
 * for each element is returned.
 *
 * Note: This method *always* returns an array.  If no valid value can be determined the
 *	   array will be empty, otherwise it will contain one or more values.
