You'd be glad to know that that your investment increased as of r4964:
494 -> 504
251 -> 258
88 -> 89
69 -> 71

I see at least two:
a) These numbers are growing (albeit slowly) and
b) numpy.TAB under IPython shows 516 completions
It doesn't matter *what* these completions are -- they're still there.
Sifting through 500 options isn't fun -- not for a newbie, nor a
salty old sailor. I agree with Joe that the problem can be
ameliorated by documentation, but I do think that an (optional)
fundamental restructuring is ultimately useful.
