OK, seems Pythonwin *does* do completion in non-interactive mode.

Tried Trustudio, and was unable to get completion working.  It also hung
on me when trying to do something very simple.

So (switching back to my personal viewpoint) I guess the easiest route to
"smart" completion in emacs would be to borrow from Pythonwin, and extend
the basic framework already in python-mode (which uses pymacs).
