I find the claim that GLOBAL doesn't really support C++ strange because I have been using it for exactly that for almost 10 years with no problems. It finds most symbols and references just fine. I say this even when using it on a C++17 code base.

Unfortunately, there is currently no maintainer for this.
I'm rather thinking of using Universal ctags in the future.
The reason for thinking so is
o Universal ctags can be used as a plug-in parser of gtags(1).
o Universal ctags is well maintained.
o Little known, but Universal ctags can treat references.
However, there is no parser which uses that function yet.
Either way, what's missing is the parser writer.
