Thanks for the quick reply (and update)!
Autocomplete can be annoying; you are absolutely right. But I endure the pain for the help it provides with CodeIntel.
So I got Autocomplete turned on REPL, but CodeIntel isn't offering suggestions for packages that I import into Python.
ActivePython 22.214.171.124 (ActiveState Software Inc.) based on
Python 2.7.2 (default, Jun 24 2011, 12:22:14) [MSC v.1500 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

Is there a temporary directory or something where REPL stores the interepreter sessions that I could point CodeIntel to?
Or am I just thinking about this all wrong?
