The code completion we have is just filling in the “selector(@objc method)” after “#” in expression contexts, which is very weak. There are two things we want:

	* Better code completion in general for compound names, e.g., after “UIView.”, we probably want to see (or have some easy way to get to) the compound name “insertSubview(_:aboveSubview:)”. That’s really SE-0021 not having good code completion.
	* Within #selector(…), we want to see compound names as the primary completions after a type name, and limit to @objc methods.
