[Owncloud] files_sharing autocomplete

I first thought this was an issue of the user_ldap app. But it turns out
to be a problem of files_sharing.
Using a select element and autocomplete to chose valid users and groups
is a nice idea. But it only works with a small user database. We have
about 50,000 users in our ldap directory. Creating a select element with
50,000 options is nearly impossible. It takes a long time to collect all
users, but it will also consume a lot of memory (if the app doesn't
crash). In my opinion, it would be better to provide a simple textfield
where users can enter a username or group. After hitting a submit button
the entry could be verified. This should work with a huge user database.
What do you think?
