The auto completion doesn't work on an element of a list. See below::

In [3]: my_list = ['0', 'second element']

In [4]: my_list.
my_list.append   my_list.count    my_list.extend   my_list.index    my_list.insert   my_list.pop      my_list.remove           my_list.reverse  my_list.sort

In [4]: my_list[0].

I don't think we've ever had this, but it would definitely be cool.

I had a feeling we had this around somewhere, and someone's just updated it - see PR #668. It's called GreedyCompleter, but it's not enabled by default, because of the risk that you could change state just by pressing tab. Have a go with the code in that pull request, and see if it works.
