I think the necessary code is implemented, someone just need to make a
bunch of good templates for the various modes and get it distributed,
perhaps even in included in Emacs proper. That would be really, really
cool!

The C++ support is at least still somewhat flaky. Klaus Berndl has
been working on the parser which I think is pretty good now, but the
look up features in Semantic quite often don't get the context right.
Quite a lot is going to happen with Semantic 2.0, though, it seems.

In the end, editing code is still about editing text. Emacs beats
everything out there for text editing. (Including that infamous little
ed-with-sound-feedback clone out there.)
