When press tabulation just after the dot, the output is too long. It contains all attributes, most of them are dunder names.

Proposed patch hides underscored names and show dunder names only if a prefix starts with '__', and private members only if a prefix starts with '_'.

(The completion of int._ returns nothing because int has no private members).

I like the idea, though some people may object to breaking their worflow (tm). Nosy'ing David just in case ;-)

Sounds good to me, especially the __ part.

I don't actually use completions, though :)

Here is improved patch. The completion of empty prefix now returns the list of private names if there are no public names. The completion of empty prefix or prefix '_' now returns the list of dunder names if there are no non-dunder names. For example try "None.".

In addition attr_matches() no longer returns duplicated names.

If no one has objections, I'll commit the patch.
