It is definitely interesting. So far I never used imenu but it looks
like a very useful thing.

I already integrated your patch in my development version. However,
I'll massage it a bit to fit better.

Good idea.

I'm thinking about whether opening a second method for this type of
functionality using imenu. Indeed imenu is a mature framework and it
is useful to use this instead of homebrew stuff like `rst-toc`.

For instance I also have using the speed bar with `rst-mode`. The
imenu documentation says it supports the speed bar somehow - so this
might be a quick win :-) .

I didn't get `which-func` to work - not even in Emacs Lisp mode. The
documentation says

  When Which Function mode is enabled, the current function name is
  continuously displayed in the mode line, in certain major modes.

Unfortunately the mode line doesn't change when I say
`which-func-mode` :-( .


Ah that's probably because I

   (setq default-mode-line-format ...)

in my `.emacs`. Uuh, these stone-old customizations bite sometimes :-( .
