Comment (by boonebgorges):

 > jQuery UI is quite large, and I'm not convinced loading most of it to
 only use it for autocomplete is worthwhile.

 If we were concerned only with Messages autocomplete, the size of jQuery
 UI would not be an issue, because the Send Messages screen is so rarely
 accessed anyway.

 In an ideal world, we would accomplish all sorts of autocomplete goodness
 with a single ticket, using the same base. But if that's going to take a
 long time (like, several versions), it's worth considering a refresh of
 Messages autocomplete in the meantime. (Though it's not urgent, because
 BP's autocomplete, while kludgy and hard to debug, is working fine at the
 moment, and I don't want to refactor for the sake of refactoring.)

 travel-junkie, would you take a look at #3278 (and Paul's BP Labs plugin)
 to see how he's accomplishing this? Perhaps with a bit broader sense of
 how autocomplete will be adopted in a further version of BP, you might
 have a broader plan for implementation.
