I'm used to working with the nifty "code-intelligence" auto-completion of identifiers in Komodo IDE. In the non-graphic work environments that I still have, I'm craving for a similar capability inside VIM.

Any ideas on how to get VIM to auto-complete based on identifiers currently in the buffer and from modules imported by the current buffer?

(I'm not referring to auto-completing general Python built-ins etc.)

Of course, one problem is that python is dynamic, so you can't really be sure what identifiers will be available outside the current file... ;)

Anyway, Pydiction seems to do more or less what you want?
