Bug Description

This bug is for the following improvements to the Angular eg-combobox component:

This patch adds new idlClass and idlField attributes to eg-combobox to
enable it to automatically construct a pcrud-base data source. The
idlClass property specifies which table/class to use as the base
data source, while idlField specifies the label to display. If idlField
is not supplied, the label field defaults to "name".

It also adds an asyncSupportsEmptyTermClick option to specify that an
async data source (whether or not it is automatically built) is
expected to never return more than a couple hundred entries or so;
when supplied, it will allow fetching the entire contents of the
data source when the user clicks on the drop-down.

This is part of a project to prepare for converting some acquisitions interfaces to Angular. Work on this bug was sponsored by MassLNC, Georgia Public Library Service, Indiana State Library, CW MARS, and King County Library System.
