I frequently encounter circumstances where it would be convenient to 
have a getElementsByAttribute method.

getElementsByAttribute(attribute, value)
would return a (possibly empty) list of elements with the attribute 
matching value.

I get several questions per day from DHTML developers wishing they could 
do this.  Is there a good alternative in this DOM draft?
