[autocomplete] Suggestion: allow the 'q' parameter be changed to something else

I'm trying to use Autocomplete in some web software, but 'q' is already used to determine where the software is in execution.

Since I'm using the software itself (well, a custom plugin,) to handle the request since the data I need is in the software's database to begin with, sending it partial words where it expects well-formed locations is somewhat of a problem.

I was able to change the parameter to 'query' by editing autocomplete's JS, and it worked flawlessly, but it'd be better if this could be done elsewhere.
