Hmm...seems pretty good from what I saw in a hurry. I will surely test it
further, it seems that it solves some of the problems Eric has with its
"default" autocompletion.

As far as I know it contains rope 0.8.  Rope is mainly a refactoring
library and for this purpose it gathers good object information for
refactorings to work reasonably.  But this information can be used for
auto-completion, too; it contains `rope.contrib.codeassist` module to
provide auto-completion and a few other commands.  This plug-in uses
this module to use rope's auto-completion.

I don't know how the default auto-completion works.  Rope tries to
infer the object variables hold by analyzing the source-code.
