	I'm pretty sure there's already an autocomplete patch somewhere. 
There's already a framework for doing it in the Keywords Autocomplete 
patch, at least. And Everything Solved actually implemented 
Assignee/QA/CC autocomplete for NASA, as I recall, so we have the code 
in our bzr repo.

	Yes, you just drop it in, and make sure that you include all the 
relevant files, and then make sure that there are no hard-coded paths in 
the files that point to the normal YUI paths (there usually aren't).

Competent, Friendly Bugzilla and Perl Services. Everything Else, too.
