You'd need to make a callback function for the specific function or db
query that you'd like to execute. Look at user.module for the definition
of the user_autocomplete callback and how to call it in node.module
node_form. The JS-calling functions are oin common.inc (I think they
should be in bootstrap.inc, though).
