#591: tab completion on record array fields

 I posted some time ago on the numpy mailing list about the desirability of
 supporting tab completion, eg in ipython, on the fields of numpy record
 arrays.  Travis had this to say:

 I would like to again make a pitch to have this feature added to numpy
 record arrays, as it would be really useful.

 Thanks,
 John Hunter
