There's been some discussion of the AutoSuggest services we're offering on 
the WorldCat Developers Network mailing list.  We have AutoSuggest services 
for our WorldCat Identities and VIAF databases.  I'm attaching some of the 
details for our Identities autosuggester below.  The demonstration of the VIAF 
autosuggester can be found at viaf.org/autosuggest.html.

Let me know if this looks useful.

The new AutoSuggest service returns the following JSON in response to the 
letter 'b' (http://orlabs.oclc.org/identities/AutoSuggest?query=b):
{"query":"b","result":[

You'll see that I'm returning every control number I can for each term.
