Thanks! I'm finding Adeptsense far more powerful and useful than I
anticipated. It's quite a pleasant surprise.

I don't want to migrate away from ctags because ctags output will ideally
produce *something* useful that Adeptsense can use. We happen to be
writing generators that produce *more useful* completions, and I wouldn't
necessarily want users to have to learn how to use the generators. I think
ctags' output is minimally sufficient, at least for the big guys C and

I know the Adeptsense terminology is a bit strange, but I think the
documentation does a good job defining the "containers", etc. and I don't
think it will change.
