Thanks!   This is a simple bug in the code that calls GetCompletions,
not in the completion engine itself.

That was my original intention.   

The problem is that we need ExpressionStatements to do completions
instead of having bare-bones expressions as completion happens at spots
where all we can get is a statement expression.

This made it unsuitable for extending the existing classes.
