a) KDevelop is a C++ IDE, not a C IDE.
b) KDevelop is currently not suitable for projects containing millions
of files, it collects too much information.
c) Parsing will _never_ be "done", as it only is an approximation.
Still it's better than in any other IDE that I've tried.
d) If you want to freak out, do it somewhere else.
