I had this concern at first as well. Our server project currently has
1160 files in it, and has many instances of differing source/header file
names. This is the project I used to test the patch, the jump was
instantaneous. Since the project alo uses Qt, I tested cases of trying
to jump from Qt header files (that weren't a part of the project),
etc... It never caused a lag.

I will certainly look into this and try to do some timings.

I am not sure how this would affect split-view any differently than the
previous functionality. The feature is still used in the same way and
does essentially the same thing. Perhaps you could elaborate a bit
more? The only time this code gets called is when the user does either
a Switch Header/Implementation or a Jump to Decl/Def.
