Enable jQuery UI actions on touch devices

I recently bought an iPad. I’ve been refusing to do so, for a variety of reasons, but the new iPad was too good to continue to ignore. And I’m loving it.
One issue I discovered, however, was that some of my websites did not function properly. I’m using jQuery UI on some pages, but that user interface library does not support the use of touch events.
Luckily, a simple hack brought relief. Nice work guys!
