Perfectly fine with me. All the needed code is available in 
quickopenplugin.cpp, except for the kate part. While you're at it, you could 
also implement a tooltip ;). I've looked at your activetooltip thing, but did 
not intuitively know how to re-use it. Also I think it would be cool if the 
debugger tooltip and language tooltip would be within the same tooltip window 
when the debugger is active.

Btw. I think the needed stuff is ther within kate, I think it's possible to 
assign a cursor to smart-ranges, so you need to assign the "hand" cursor to 
all use-ranges when CTRL is pressed, and unassign it when the key is
