I agree.  Replacing KDevelop's background parser with gcc is a naive 
suggestion.  To even make it work at all will likely require substantial 
changes to gcc's frontend or a wholesale fork which will defeat the purpose 
since mainline g++ bugfixes won't propogate.

Vladimir, with all do respect, you are making suggestions/comments that only 
_appear_ to be of value.  Go and actually dig into the code.  Once you've 
tried and failed at your gccxml powered background parser we can talk.

For now, this thread is a waste of time as Roberto is the only one _working_ 
on it.
