FWIW, the glx2 script editor aggregates the necessary information for 
autocompletion when you load a new script. There's a negligible delay at 
startup while it parses all the stacks in use, but then no delay while 
you're editing. Might be worth refactoring the SE if it's actually doing 
a lookup for every keystroke.
