[wingide-users] Autocomplete nits

Maybe using some sort of filter could balance both needs. Either with a
floating button next to the suggestions dialog or they could be
displayed after you type _ or __.

We'll add this.

Maybe.  There's a tension here between displaying the attributes that 
are often used / are interesting so to help the developer see what the 
useful choices are and displaying everything.  It depends on the code 
being written, of course, but I don't think that __class__ is used often

and displaying it for every unknown variable would probably be 
distracting.  That said, I could see adding it in a more aggressive 
autocomplete mode.
