Yes, i also already though about improving this. Your idea is good. Also
namespace- or class-scopes shouldn't be shown again and again, and we coulf
abbreviate functions by parens, for variables we could shorten the prefix to
just "var", etc. It could look like extremely simplified code.

Greetings, David

Hey there,

a user (blender dev) showed me this screenshot with the plea to improve it:

I hope we all agree that this is completely bad. His idea  where the "all,
funcs, used funcs, ..." buttons to the left which are nice but imo hard to
implement with the current api (or am I mistaken?).

For starters I thought about at least grouping the declarations by kind. Imo
it would be better, but right now the declarations are listed in the order
they are declared which is probably also helpful. So maybe we could at least
merge consecutive declarations of the same kind?

Like so:

Typedef foo, Typedef bar, Function abc, Function asdf, Class foo


Typedefs foo, bar, Functions abc, asdf, Class foo

What do you think?
