Hmm this sound kinda dangerous for projects with thousands of files!

The globalNamespace()-node of the code-model contains all the entries of all 
files in the project combined, in the same Format a FileDom does. It would be 
much better trying to find the match there(the algorithm shouldn't differ too 
much, but could be a lot faster).

For example a split-view with automatic synchronization might get unusable by 
this patch, because automatic synchronization is automatically performed 
while typing, and with a big project this might result in a significant hang 
every half second.

greetings, David
