LotusScript completes private parts of a superclass in a subclass

The LotusScript class system differs in a key way from the way Java works. In Java, if you create a subclass from a parent class, the subclass can only access the Public methods, variables and properties, not the Private methods, variables and properties of the class it iherits from.

In LotusScript, a subclass can access those private methods, variables and properties.

But: while the Eclipse LotusScript Editor accepts specifying a private method or property of a superclass in a subclass, the autocompletion system does not show those private methods, variables and properties of the superclass.

This means that the developer needs to fully type all the private calls. Which translates to lost developer productivity.
