I didn't see any flaws in it.  In any case we'll find out pretty soon if
there are.

The above refers to the window configuration-restoring logic.

One issue I still see is that if TAGS is slightly outdated, point is
positioned not on the first line of a function/macro/struct, but on
the line recorded in TAGS.  I hope this will be fixed soon.

Okay, should work now. Thanks for the reminder.

Another minor issue is with the help-echo in the xref buffer: it says
"mouse-2: display, mouse-1: navigate", which is confusing because it's
unclear what exactly each of these 2 means.  How about saying
explicitly "show in this window" and "show in another window"
(assuming this is what that does)?

Not exactly. Here "navigate" means bury the xref and other temporary buffers, and then display the reference in the current or other window, or frame it was originally intended to be displayed in (depending on which command was invoked: `xref-find-definitions', `xref-find-definitions-other-window' or `xref-find-definitions-other-frame').

Finally, I still think we need to allow searching symbols not only in
the current buffer's programming language, at least with the tags
back-end.  Without that, we cannot deprecate find-tag.

Please refer to the following messages:

http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=19466#32
http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=19466#41

And for completeness, a third option: define a minor mode that would remap xref-find-* commands to their etags-only variants, which can be trivially implemented by let-binding the two relevant variables to their default values.
