One could do the completion command separately, then a macro that
inserts a dot and run the completion command.

I do have a note about supporting “trigger patterns” which would
allow this, these would be basic regular expressions, so you could also
have a command trigger on certain “behaviors”, but the use-case list
I have for this feature is very limited (despite sounding powerful),
which means it’s not that high on my list, but it is there.
