Notice how it very clearly has an idea what's going on in the C code and
reacts to that.

Locals are really useful for getting an overview what's there in the file,
and for jumps. Files stuff I don't use too much indeed.

Not using Gnus, and even if, I use separate frames for clearly separate
layouts. So far I didn't feel the need to optimise layout management
enough to take the time to evaluate and choose one of the window managers.
