Additional problems:
(1) Named invocation argument-values are not auto-completed, as in 
"parent=parent", where "parent" is a variable declared above.
(2) The "else" side of ternary if (as in "pos = x if isVisibile() else 
y") is not auto-completed (however, the "if" side is).
Apparently, Wing seems to dislike the ternary if notation - it gives a 
"syntax error" tool-tip when you place the cursor anywhere on it.
Apropos auto-completion: There was a long thread in this respectable 
forum sometime ago on the subject, featuring such ideas as (1) 
organizing the suggestions by local/self/global/language categories, 
possibly configurable, and (2) restricting selection to object type, as 
in "raise" [exception-types-only], which you promised to consider. Any 
work done?
Also, you promised me long ago to look at the little annoyance of 
dragging from the editor window to the "debug probe" tool ending with 
text being moved (instead of copied). Remember?
