[autocomplete] Added configuration option for query parameter name.

I needed this, so I added a few small changes to make it work. The plugin works the same as before, with 'q' as the default name of the search query variable passed to the server-side script, but I added a parameter that can be passed in as an option called 'queryParamName.'

So, for example, if I wanted to have my query param to be called 'title' vs. 'q,' I could change this like so:

$("input#document_title").autocomplete('/documents.js', { queryParamName: 'title'});

That's all there is to it. I'd love to get this included in the plugin if possible, and of course I'm not set on any of the naming conventions or coding style, I just want the functionality.

The diff I'm attaching is to version 1.0.2 I believe, as that's the last version mentioned in the changelog from the zip file I downloaded here:
