Wing currently does not do this because there's a possibility that the
first use of .startswith is a mistake and it requires more indication
that foo has an attribute named 'startswith'.
We have thought of adding an option to enable the type inferencer to
guess a bit more. For example, it might identify foo as probably being
a string since a standard string method was seen. This would introduce
more opportunity for errors since a non string instance could have a
method named 'startswith', but on balance be helpful. Any option like
this would be introduced in future Wing versions.
