jQuery UI Select Menu

jQuery UI 1.8 is now at release candidate 3 and is looking like a 1.8 final release will be available any time now. After looking at the button demos, I haven't yet decided if I'm going to replace my existing custom buttons with these new widgets.

The auto-complete widget does look very promising, especially for large data sets. However, I have several instances where I have only a small data set and using an auto-complete widget would be overkill.

The select-menu widget looks perfect and I'm looking forward to a stable version in jQuery UI. It will be nice to replace the standard select elements, which look really out of place in a jQuery UI theme.
