I agree with you.

But in GLOBAL, handler(gtags) and parser(gctags) are separated each other,
so that handler can treat various ctags's style parser.

How about adding --langmap option to gctags(1) like Exuberant Ctags?

For example,

        % gctags --langmap=c:sfm,sft ...

Gctags accepts files which have suffix 'sfm' or 'sft' as C source files.
You can write this command line in gtags.conf (or $HOME/.globalrc).

        |       :GTAGS=gctags --langmap=c:sfm,sft %s:\
        |       :GRTAGS=gctags -r --langmap=c:sfm,sft %s:\
        |       :GSYMS=gctags -s --langmap=c:sfm,sft %s:\

What do you think?
