Bug Description

I have explained the issue on the stackoverflow website and although I don't fully understand it, basically the autocomplete does not work. I specifically use Jedi *sublime plugin* widely used and have tried it on other autocomplete plugins, the same bug occurs.

One user posted a workaround the issue and went in more depth to explain the problem.

I take the problem to be that the docstrings used by these plugins are not consistently present. I've added Pydoc docstrings for all of the public methods, which should solve the problem.

summary: - Sublime, Atom & similar Autocomplete NOT working
+ Pydoc docstrings are not consistently used

I installed Atom and played around with it but even with all the docstrings in place I didn't get a lot of help from the IDE. So I'm going to reopen this issue; presumably something is still missing, and I don't have the expertise necessary to know how to fix this or how to easily test my changes.
