rtags looks interesting.

Ive been thinking for a long time...
Once things like dbus stabilize, its only a question of time before 
the optimal solution is to parcel off code analysis to the right source
rather than emacs running in a (hopeless) catching up game of trying to do
as well as the language system itself.

So "what it entails" ?? What are the issues?

The one question I have straight off is "Is it generic?"

ie can rtags carry over to haskell/python etc?
[Of course assuming that the corresponding server for haskell/python etc
code analysis exist/can be written]
