etags is OK.  For practical use etags must run on all relevant source
files in the target project by something like this.

     find . -name "*.[chCH]" -print | etags -

I am asking if we can provide easier way to perform above task.  In
above syntax manipulating "*.[chCH]" to include .cc, .cpp and .cxx is
not trivial.
