I seem to remember there being a tip that an *assert **isinstance* would 
do what you need, even if never executed, so if class C has a class 
method called GetOne that returns an instance of C then:

*if 0:**
**   c = **GetOne()**
**   assert isinstance(c, C)*

should do what you need.  If you only need the auto-complete to work for 
a short time then stopping the code in the debugger after c has been 
initialised and then doing your typing also works nicely.
