Maybe the manual should advertise the necessity to call etags with
--regexp in certain cases more prominently instead.

On the assumption that no one will read the manual until they have to,
I'd still suggest at least a 1-sentence mention of the issue in the
documentation for xref-find-definitions, even if it mostly says see the
manual if you're having problems finding tags.

Yes, well, I probably agree from the standpoint of practicality. Even though xref-find-definitions itself knows zilch about etags.
