For autocomplete http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/8020/Auto-complete-Control but 7 years old. In Safari on Mac works fine. In-place editing http://tool-man.org/examples/edit-in-place.html (inactive since 2005) and http://dbachrach.com/blog/2007/01/create-flickr-like-editing-fields-using-ajax-css/ (5 years old). 

I noticed that oldiness too. So far I came already quite far with jQuery
UI Autocomplete widget and it seems will fit nicelly in Aida event
framework, so let me see if this will be ok, for now.

But do we need in-place editing? Is it good UX design pattern?

Why you think it won't be good UX? I'm using in-plce editing quite
extensivelly so I need to find some non-prototype replacement, maybe
jQuery based for start....
