Another idea is to look at writing some scripts to integrate this w/
Wing.  You won't be able to integrate it w/ Wing's autocompleter
but could collect the input either in the arg entry area or could
allow selecting something in the editor, running it through
the expansion algorithm, and replacing the selection.

Info on the API and writing scripts to extend Wing is here:
