[Seaside] JQuery ui autocomplete with multiple parameters

I don't know that autocomplete has any functionality for filtering. Perhaps there's a third party modification that accomplishes that; however, it should be relatively simple.
I haven't tested this, but you should be able to ask your database for the filtered data when your name field throws the blur event, and update the source option on the autocomplete component. If your data is all client-side, then you'll have to write a little JavaScript filter on your array.
It could look something like this:
var filterData = function() {    $('input[name="address"]').disable().val('Loading addresses...'); // optional ui helper    $.ajax({        ...        success: function( data ) {            if ( data.success ) {                $('input[name="address"]').enable().val( data.results[0] ); // optional ui helper                $('input[name="address"]').autocomplete( 'source', data );            }        }    });}
<input type="text" name="name" placeholder="Please enter your name." onblur=filterData()></input><input type="text" name="address" placeholder="Please enter your address."></input>

Something like that anyway. Hope that helps. This is probably the line you are looking for (in Smalltalk):
renderComponentOn: html    | someData | someData = [].    ...    (html jQuery: '#theAddressField') autocomplete optionAt: 'source' put: someData.
