Well, you would then need to load the .c file first (which I never
load, and which just might confuse people if it showed up among the
buffers), only to parse that and load the referenced *.web file.  And
the TAGS file does save a line-number anyway, or am I missing
something?  And what about other tools using the TAGS-file --- are
there other tolls using it?
