[bioontology-support] [POSSIBLE VIRUS:###] Term-selection widget bug

Unfortunately, there is a jQuery namespace collision when you use our 
widget with another widget that is invoked with the method name 
"autocomplete". There is currently no workaround, but in the future we 
will switch to using a custom name for ours so as to avoid this.

Sorry for the trouble.
