Hi Joaquin,

thanks. Yes, they look good, and I can probably use them, actually
KeywordSource from plone.formwidget.autocomplete demo.py comes closest
and can be easily adapted.

I just think my usecase is rather general; after there are more than
about 10 terms in a vocabulary, (In my case countries in Europe, why do
they keep splitting up, and where will I put Scotland ;-)
anything else than an autocomplete widget becomes user-hostile. So a
don't-repeat-yourself solution would be best.
But this'll work, thanks!
