JQuery vs Dojo

I'm evaluating Dojo vs Jquery. Here is a practical example where Dojo is losing in terms of simplicity. Can someone tell me if there's a better way to do this with dojo?

** Code cleanliness- how would one go about striping a HTML table

dojo.lang.forEach(document.getElementsByTagName("table"), function(table){
dojo.lang.forEach(table.getElementsByTagName("tr"), function(row,i){
if ( i % 2 == 1 )
dojo.html.addClass( row, "odd" );

Dojo too has class selector support, although I haven't played with it much... I can't give you the exact code off the top of my head, but you should be able to get pretty close in Dojo to what you write in jQuery.
