I think the problem can be divided into at least two parts:

1) getting the information out of the code
For this some kind of parser is needed.

2) Doing something useful with this information,
like autocompletion, jump to declaration/definition, show all uses, rename 
function/member/variable etc.

Part 2 is still more than enough work. I just wondered whether we really have 
to manpower to get both done.
