[wingide-users] source completion

Tangent question from a relative Python newbie not yet familiar with the zillion available Python libraries...

Does Python not have a sizeof-like function to do what you are doing with that getsizefromtype routine?  It seems painful/strange that you must write that function.

It should be going alphabetically and selecting the first match 
alphabetically, not randomly.  However, augmenting that by selecting 
most recently used match, if any, is a good suggestion.  I've added it 
as a feature request.
