Bug fix for getJSON call

This is an awesome plugin! But there's a bug in the keyChange function -- it doesn't construct the URL correctly if the URL already contains GET parameters. To fix this, find this line:

$.getJSON(req_string+"?"+opts.queryParam+"="+encodeURIComponent(string)+limit+opts.extraParams, function(data){

And replace it with this:
$.getJSON(req_string, opts.queryParam+"="+encodeURIComponent(string)+limit+opts.extraParams, function(data){

Then jQuery will automatically add either a ? or a & as appropriate.

    I think Drew has a provision for this with the extraParams option.

    So doing something like this is wrong:

       $("#geos").autoSuggest("suggestJson.php?filter=all", {
            queryParam: "keyword",

    This is how you should do it

       $("#geos").autoSuggest("suggestJson.php", {
            queryParam: "keyword",
            extraParams: "&filter=all",
