ctags tells me the place where all the functions are defined. It also
tells me where all the defines are and where all the structure members
are. It tells me the location of the tag types and the typedefs and so
on. All of that is available to me using a single shell command and a
single button press in vim. OK, that last one was a lie, because the
default button combination for "follow tag" is <C-]>, which I have to
type as CTRL-ALT GR-9 on Linux and CTRL-+ on Windows. But the point

How many search commands do you have to memorize? If you want to even
just read the code of another project, maybe even a big one, how many
sed-scripts do you have to run over the existing code base in order to
navigate? Or even programs? Or are you content with only reading the
code you directly control the style of?

Nothing against minimal solutions, I like those. But they have to
actually solve the problem without creating equally big new ones.
