This is a tangent.  No one expects a tool like Ebrowse to compete with
language servers.  OTOH, for such a simple job, a language server is
not really needed.

We _are_ working on getting a client for language servers into Emacs
(we decided to bring Eglot into core), it just takes time (patches are
welcome, btw).  But that's a much larger job, and will enable many
more features, than a tool for browsing C++ code.
