There's not way to do this now in Python code, but it's an option we've
been looking at
adding. The completer for non-Python code already does this (although
it separates out
words by context -- code vs comment vs string vs template tags). So it
may not be a
stretch to drive completion w/in comments and strings at least using the
I'll try to look at this; it's something I've been wanting also but
haven't had time to
work on yet.
