[BangPypers] Autocompletion in emacs

I am a python beginner. I found the auto completion feature that IDEs like SPE provide, wherein when you type, for example, "gtk.", it shows you the list of available function calls in a dropdown box, pretty useful. Especially when the function description is also shown as a tooltip. So, I was looking for something like that in emacs.

 The problem with the world is stupidity. Not saying there should be a
capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the
safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
