I initially thought that would be easy. Turns out it isn't. ECB uses all
kinds of 'defadvice' to achieve that.

There's a package sr-speedbar at


but I don't know if that one's still working.

I tried with 'emacs -Q' and it "works for me". Make sure you do the
above *before* firing up speedbar.

Instead of bending Speedbar to your will, maybe it's just easier if
you'd look at other solutions. As I've written, Speedbar simply resorts
to 'imenu' to get the tags. Calling 'imenu-add-to-menubar' will let you
generate a menu entry for the headings; that should also work with every
org file. Maybe there's a little package out there putting the imenu
headings in a buffer; it can't be very hard to do. Just take a look


as a starting point.
