Let me take this opportunity to mention a couple of the new commands
that might also be relevant:
1) Enhanced Insert Label From Document..., searches all files
included in your TM_LATEX_MASTER file, if that is set, or just the
current document, for all labels, filters according to current word,
if any, and shows a list of all labels for you to pick from.
2) Macro: Greek letter. Expands current word to a greek letter
command, i.e. 'a' becomes \alpha, 'vf' becomes \varphi etc.

with regards to the completion macro/scripts, who is their author/
maintainer? If they have no role any more, maybe we should consider
removing them? Is anyone using them?
