The problem is that GCC simply does not provide the needed features;
most prominently, showing completion candidates for C++ code.

There is a project by Tomohiro Matsuyama, called gccsense (see [1]),
which uses a modified GCC to provide this feature. However, requiring
users to compile a modified GCC is a big barrier. According to Tomohiro
Matsuyama, implementing this feature as a GCC plugin also is not
feasible, which is why he asked for help on the GCC mailing list in
4/2010 (see [2]), but the feedback he got was not very encouraging.
