You'd need to update the etags program for that, and also the Lisp
commands that access TAGS and operate on it.

If you are talking about C++, Emacs already comes with a program
called 'ebrowse' and a matching set of Emacs commands, which I think
are supposed to support all that already.  I suggest to read the
ebrowse manual (bundled with Emacs) and see if you can put that to
good use.
