Is there any thought to someone extending Exuberant CTags 
to handle innovations in Pascal since Knuth?  This CTags 
program has a Pascal mode that handles old-style Turbo 
Pascal source with procedural code reasonably well, but 
falls flat with object oriented code once dot notation is 
used.  The advantage of Exuberant CTags is that then 
arbitrary programmer text editors like Vim can browse 
source code in the language almost as seamlessly as a 
dedicated IDE environment like Lazarus.
