I did not, I'll try it as soon as my KDevelop rebuilds. 
At any case, I'd suggest to rename "Navigate function declarations" to something more

This should be actually a shortcut that can be used right on a symbol. In fact,
I think right now the navigation widgets are a bit overloaded with features. Say,
in Eclipse the "open type" dialog just has the list of types, and it is sufficient
in most cases. Can we have the display of all details optional?

Howe can we use that, if there's nothing to complete yet -- you're going to
add 5 new methods :-)

Well, I'd expect it to work. But I'll check after my rebuild finished.
