Custom query parameter

The current implementation attaches a parameter called "term" which is hard-coded. This is not ideal when autocomplete is implemented in a system that already expects something like "q". Changing the backend to "term" might break other implementations that give out "q".

The best way to handle this is to allow an option to be passed called "param" or "queryParam", etc

You can already implement any system you want by passing a function as the source option. Check out the remote with cache demo to see an example.
