This seems very odd : would it not make sense for TeXworks
to inspect the currently selected typesetting engine, and
then /if/ the user wants auto-completion, to offer completions
only from the set that are known to be compatible with the
engine selected ?  In my case, I work exclusively with XeTeX,
so neither Beamer nor LaTeX completions could possibly be of
any interest.
