No.  etags only records _definitions_ of functions, macros, typedefs, 
etc.  It does not record where they are _used_, and it by default doesn't 
record local variables.

By contrast, mkid records _all_ tokens, no matter what their usage is.  
So if you want to know where is some function _called_ etags won't help, 
but ID will.

I always think about ID-utils as a language-aware Grep.
