    No. The output does not contain the actual body of functions, for
    instance. It is useful for knowing "what's the type of this global
    variable?", "where is this type defined?", "how many arguments has
    this function? what's their types?", "what's the data members of this
    struct?", "what's the methods of this class?" etc

In that case, it seems like a fine feature as far as I can see.

I will ask the GCC developers about it.
