auto completion in new release candidate

jon_bondy
Is there a good reason for the auto completion code to continue to work
(interfere) while entering a comment?

Thanks

Jon

I can find it useful when editing commented out code, something I frequently
do before I've made the final "put everything together" modules.

I agree, but there something else that would be nice.
If I type, say "cu", the tab, then "(", I see three choices:
  cube(s)
  cube([width,depth, height])
  cube([width,depth, height],center=true)

None of these are highlighted, and there is no way to autocomplete them.
I think it would be nice to allow completion of a template, perhaps with
something like these.
  cube();
  cube([]);

It would be very particularly helpful for things like translate, scale,
rotate, etc.

I might also be nice to use autocomplete for user-defined modules.
