There are cases that PyCharm picks up that Wing doesn't and the reverse 
may be true; I really don't know the full extent of what PyCharm can and 
can't pick up.  We do know what the limitations of Wing's static 
analyzer are and are planning on addressing them, though there will 
always be cases where types cannot be determined through static analysis 
given the dynamic nature of Python.

Wing also will pull data from a live debug process, which is extremely 
useful when types are not determined through static analysis.
