I hadn't ported any of the
HTML::Widget::Element::Dojo::AutoComplete::* modules to FormFu,
because I was aware that they would all break anyway when dojo went
from 0.4 to 0.9,
but it'd probably be best to create a Dojo::* element which accepts
either a callback-url or a static data structure to populate the list.

Then... create the DBIC element as a subclass of that, and use DBIC to
fetch the data and pass it to the element.

Although 0.9 is now out, there's still some issues that have stopped
me upgrading the existing Dojo::* elements - regardless though, 0.9 is
a *very* nice product.
