The re module is a pain because of how it's written.  We'll try to fix
this.  Note that you can do the above in the Python Shell in Wing 3.0.4
and get auto-completion there.  However I should note that it looks like
completing my_re in the Python Shell is broken in the Wing 3.1 beta for
(probably) unrelated reasons.
