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 __.

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
