Improve usability and accessibility of long select lists and autocomplete tagging widgets.
Use Select2 for tags and autocomplete stuff.
Patch is almost ready, it just needs a new Select2 tokenizer that supports our
"tag with, comma" syntax.
FAPI is not going to be changed, but since the latest version of Select2 only works with
<input type="text"> used for free tagging, to a
User interface changes
Is this still a relevant change: The return value expected by the autocomplete API changes from
array('value' => $value, 'label' => $label) to
array('id' => $value, 'text' => $label).
