Provide Durable Way To Access Underlying YUI AutoComplete object.This enhancement request is to make a durable, future proof  method of AutoSuggest javascript object instance retrieval.Presently, the Autosuggest implementation for CFinput does not provide a documented way to get access to the underlying Javascript object. Right now, the javascript object is kept inside ColdFusion.objectCache under a key with the same value as the ID of the input field.This is a fine way to handle this, and works quite well. See, as this is undocumented, and doesn't follow the pattern of Grid ColdFusion.Grid.getGridObject(gridname) and Tree ColdFusion.Tree.getTreeObject(treename) there is confusion about how to do this and how to ensure code will work across future versions.
