Sub-issue of: #1933614-21: [META] Locale settings in Drupal make little (UX) sense
Related/postponed-on: #675446: Use jQuery UI Autocomplete

The country list drop-down is way too long and users have to scroll through its options. Lets provide them a way to filter it down to only a few of them by simply typing a couple of letters included in their intended selection. A jQuery UI autocomplete combo allows that (demo).

I originally thought to go with th installer component, but the country/timezone selector is not unique to the installer - we also use it in the Regional settings page (admin/config/regional/settings). That's why I believe the language system is the right place and why I filed this issue against it, but feel free to change it as use see fit. I claim absolutely no expertise in the core components whatsoever :P
