Extra parameters in autocomplete

I think there should be an option in autocomplete plugin to send extra parameters to the server. With this option, it's possible to create an unique page that receives all the autocomplete's requests and respond to them accordingly.

I know this ticket does not belong to this section, but I couldn't find another way to post about this plugin.

You can perform any action you want using the source option.

Ok, I know I can do anything with the source option. But suppose I want to use an url as the source (to use AJAX) and I want pass a string and an array to the target.

Withou an specific option, you will have to explicit write the variables and append them to the "source", like:

source: "search.php?my_string=Passed+String&my_array[]=value1&my_array[]=value2";

I guess it would be a lot better with something like the way I posted in forum

source: "search.php",
extraParams: {
                "my_string": "Passed String",
                "my_array": array('value1', 'value2')
