Comment (by DJPaul):

 To update. Per previous dev chat, implementing this with jQuery
 autocomplete involves rewriting all of the javascript, which is about half
 of the implementation. Additionally, autocomplete is part of jQuery UI; to
 load it, we need to first load UI Core, Widget, and (maybe) Position. And
 then one or two more javascripts are needed to customise autocomplete (we
 could bundle these into one file). Then there's need for another new
 javascript file to keep the core implementation of the @mentions
 autosuggest separate from BP-Default.

 In a nutshell: we're going to be loading ~6 new javascript files on most
 Activity pages, Private Messaging (compose) and maybe bbPress forums. This
 strikes as pretty inelegant.

 Is using jQuery autocomplete a must-do?
