DrScheme used to be able to do that and I believe it will be able to
do that again in the future. I believe Eli and I have discussed this,
so I'm a little surprised by his reply, but one way or the other, we
should have that capability back before v4.0.

As far as word completion goes, it currently does not consider the
buffer where you're editing. Others have asked for that too, so I hope
to get to it at some point.
