Comment (by DJPaul):

 You didn't attach the patch, but looking at the code, it's pretty clear
 that jquery.autocomplete.js is a third-party script, albeit an old one
 dating back to BuddyPress 1.0. If we went this way, we'd have to change
 `messages_autocomplete_init_jsblock` as that's the one place in core where
 we call this script. The root problem is a badly? named jQuery module, but
 I don't know if this script predates jQuery UI's or vice-versa (they must
 both date from around the same time).

 I am generally against modifying third party scripts for this kind of
 reason, even scripts we're working towards deprecating (see: the at-
 mentions JS).
