#4580: Refactoring messages autocomplete to use jQuery UI Autocomplete

 BuddyPress uses an outdated version of autocomplete within the messages
 component. I was still using it as well in the current version of my
 events plugin, but have upgraded to using the jQuery UI Autocomplete
 version that ships with WordPress in the new version of it. BuddyPress
 should really do the same eventually.

 I'd be happy to port what I have done over to BP and post it here as a
 patch for your perusal. Am fairly busy at the moment, though, so might
 only get to it in a month or so. If anybody else wants to have a go before
 me then I'd be happy to provide my JS code.

 Styling-wise we could leave everything as is or spice it up. Not sure
 what's best here, but we would definitely need a new autocomplete style
 sheet. CSS isn't really my strong suite, so my patch would probably use
 [https://github.com/helenhousandi/wp-admin-jquery-ui Helen Housandi's
 styles] as that's what I was using for my own rewrite.

 Also, some plugins might be referencing the existing scripts for their own
 needs, even though they shouldn't really. Might be best to register them
 anyways for a given period and eventually chuck em out after making sure
 that everybody's educated about it.
