I certainly hope that at least the Semantic one materializes soon

benefit of unbundled packages, and users of Emacs are just punished by
having to learn a new UI for no real advantage.

It's probably up to CEDET developers.

But the UI itself is one of the benefits. If the old one was considered superior, the new API could have been introduced without really changing the UI.

    . The doc string of xref-find-function mentions several variants of
      invoking the function, but there doesn't seem to be any way of
      controlling that when invoking the function interactively, is
      there?  I think it would be good to be able to lookup only the
      definitions or only the references of a symbol.

There seems some confusion here: you do now invoke xref-find-function. It's not a function anyway, it's a variable, which different backends can set to implement the backend interface.

You invoke different commands from the xref package. Try typing `M-x xref-find- TAB'.

Not from me: I've been told in this discussion that I don't understand
the new UI, don't appreciate its many virtues, and generally am no
more than an obstacle on the way of progress.

I really don't remember stating that in this discussion.
