Autocomplete: support canceling a search in progress

being able to cancel a search, and the subsequent visual events (displaying the selector, etc), permits more flexibility in how and where this widget can be used.

I have a fix that I'll sending a pull request for imminently.

How would this work with custom sources?

Right now it works with custom sources that are urls. I'm not sure about for functions and arrays. I expect in the case of arrays this is unlikely to make any sense. Perhaps changing the name to stopAjaxRequest would be better? Also, as per the github comment - I should make this a public API.

By custom I only mean functions. The widget does 100% of the handling for strings and arrays, so there's no custom functionality defined by the user.

My comment on GitHub wasn't that you should make this a public API, it was that there's no benefit to you by having this in the core of the widget. It's just as easy for you to add a single method in an extension. Please start a discussion on the forum if you really feel like this needs to be in the core of the widget.
