KDevelop syntax parser is barely usable

It takes about 30 minutes to reparse project (as large as MySQL
sources). More often than not I can't jump to a symbol because symbol
database is broken and is reparsing. And it breaks too much (several
times a day). Moreover often it works not very well: shows duplicate
entries, jumps to declaration but can't jump to definition, don't see
macro definitions, etc.

I was happy with how kdevelop 3 worked with ctags: it was not very
precise, but it worked always and it worked fast. Now kate has ctags
plugin. Is it possible to utilize this plugin in kdevelop as a helper
to syntax parser and make symbol jumping always available?
