If aggdraw is an extension module written in C or C++, try 
upgrading to Wing 2.1.2, which attempts to scrape autocompletion 
information out of extension modules.  Wing 2.0.x does not do 
that and it's a free upgrade.

It's also possible to generate *.pi files that Wing's source 
analyser will use to provide completion options, but I'm not sure 
that works quite right in 2.0.3 either, which is quite old.

There are some details on this here:


(see the section "Using *.pi files to assist analysis")

Hope that helps.
