I agree, but I think we should get back on track discussing the
technical issues and aspects of building infrastructure for a good
modern IDE using some help from GCC.

Suppose we did have a way getting the necessary information from GCC
that is not in the form of an AST: what such an information package
would need to include to allow the functionality users expect from a
modern IDE?  Could someone come up with a list of information items
that would be needed?  Given such a list, we could try to discuss
various alternatives of getting the info from GCC.
