Is it possible to add a magic function like %hideprivate so it will hide all private function in python code completion.

All the function name start with _ or __ like <__file__ , _name> will not show when user press <tab> completion.

Or maybe can somebody provide hint on: 
1. how to add new magic function
2. how to modify the code completion
