In r176848 I added a link to SourceWeb to

We seem to have a proliferation of Clang-based source navigators (DXR,
woboq, and now SourceWeb). It would be really great if you could get
in contact with the authors of these other tools (I see Oliver Goffart
is already in this thread) and discuss what kinds of issues you ran
into when developing the respective tools (you probably want to
contact jcranmer for DXR); if there appear to be some common issues,
it would make sense to get that information upstream so that we can
fix/improve the situation. It would probably be sufficient to send a
mail to cfe-dev CC'ing them.

Also, if there is enough common ground between your objectives, it
would be really cool if we could pool effort and develop a solution on
trunk in clang-tools-extra: and then dogfood it! I've been wanting a
better source navigator than Doxygen's source listings for a while
now, and I think it would be appreciated.
