Yes - I read that. I just don't see how its useful in C development. I'm
not saying it is not useful. Just that I don't see what its for. Mea
culpa. The code navigation doesn't seem to do much and the decoration
modes are not particularly helpful. I guess it could do with some sort
of tutorial as I played with it a while and didn't really see what
benefits it gave. Maybe you could describe how you use it?

Yes, I used it for a while but found the locals/files stuff to be of
limited use.

I realise that, but its kind of a must have when switching between
things like ecb and gnus IMO.
