At current there doesn't seem to be a way to access the scriptaculous autocompleter instance when using the Autocompleter mixin because the instance is just instantiated without a reference. The attached patch gives access to this instance.
In my usecase I build a ForceAutocompleter which works in conjunction with the autocompleter in such a way that it starts to double as a drop down list.
I would love to see this patch included.
