I've just looked at kscope and it is only for C not for C++.

I think the current navigation/autocompletion/refactoring can be made more 
reliable without being completely replaced..

I'd propose this project:
- Make autocompletion work correctly with templates(especially 
- Make calltips more useful by making them more reliable, and also parsing and 
showing doxygen-style documentation together with the 
- Add a "show all callers" feature for functions, and a "show all users" 
feature for classes
- Move the calculation-part of code-completion into another thread so it 
doesn't make the cursor unresponsive while working on a big project

All this may be a bit much for a single project.. but I'd like to participate 
myself trying to achieve it. :)
