Feature request: remove tag but keep contents

See original GitHub issue


Would there be any interest in a feature which removes a tag but retains it’s contents?

This could be useful for situations where to prevent bad formatting all the div elements are removed whilst retaining the contents. For example; <div><div>some text <a href="somewebsite">link here</a></div><div>more text</div></div> the above would become this: some text <a href="somewebsite">link here</a> more text

Let me know if this is of interest and I can generate a pull request.
