[development] Autocomplete For A "Select" Widget

I'm looking at using autocomplete for contacts stored in CiviCRM.
Implementing basic autocomplete using the standard Drupal hook was
pretty simple: just search the CRM store for a contacts "display name"
via the autocomplete handler.
But there's a problem with how the standard handler works: display
names are not unique. What I probably *need* to do is this: use the
autocomplete field to populate a "select" widget that uses the display
name as the label, and the unique numerical contact_id as the key.
Before I start looking into implementing this myself: have any of you
implemented this kind of widget? Or do you have advice how best to do this?
