[wingide-users] .pri Files for .NET (autocomplete for .NET classes when using IronPython)

Hello all,

Wing uses .pri files for its autocomplete. (IIRC)

We'd love autocomplete for .NET classes. The current tool for generating 
.pri files uses "inspect.get_argspec" (which doesn't work in IronPython) 
and so would need a bit of work (like adding references to assemblies) 
to work with IronPython.

It occurs to us that an alternative approach might be for us to generate 
pri files for *all* the .NET classes in one go.

Is this a viable approach?

By which I mean - does Wing load *all* the .pri files into memory. Would 
creating a huge set of them be *likely* to impact performance of Wing ?
