Yup, sorry.  That's because tab completion relies on python's builtin dir() 
function, which filters out a few things first, and I have no control over that:

In [1]: class bunch:pass

In [2]: a=bunch()

In [3]: a.__dict__
Out[3]: {}

In [4]: dir (a)
Out[4]: ['__doc__', '__module__']

In [5]: a.__
a.__class__   a.__doc__     a.__module__

So this one is out of my control, I'm afraid.
