What I want, for example, is: rename a virtual method in a base class, and 
have methods in all derived clases in the entire project automatically 
renamed. That's extra boring to do manual, and if you miss a function, you've 
got a problem. (And don't tell me about -Woverloaded-virtual -- it gives 
spurious warnings in some cases).

In that case, you don't need any smart IDE. However, in cases where I work on 
a large codebase I don't know, some help from IDE is desired.
