Currently auto popup after delay only after '.' or in a string.

Need extension config dialog before add this.  Should then review completion extension for options that people might want.

The extension configuration was added a couple weeks after this was opened.  The idea of the second message is that new popup should be optional even when completions are enabled.

I think my proposal was to auto popup name completion without having to hit tab.  Maybe only if match.  I withdraw it.  Would have to check updated completion list after each char, maybe call after, and usually cancel.  Never a request for this.
