Rather than features one of important thing to "fix" would be to make
CEDET faster. Pushing some of CEDET related task to thread (when
threading becomes available) or converting some of the performance
sensitive code to C and call them from emacs would be a solution. Right
now with CEDET enabled, it gets in the way of normal editing. I have to
explicitly set semantic-idle-scheduler-idle-time to a higher value to
prevent idle scheduler from kicking in early.
