My wishlist:

* Perl Beautification
* Comment reflow in Perl and Ada languages
* Color coded buffer tabs, e.g. based on file type
* Ability to scroll buffer tabs with middle mouse button (like FireFox)
* Graphical Call tree which can be expanded to nodes or one node at a time
   (e.g. like Vax SCA or Understand for Ada tools)
* Graphical data structure trees (e.g. like SCA or Understand tools)
* Graphical With'ing tree (Include tree for C or Use tree for Perl)
* Allow Differentiation in symbol browse between SET and USE of variables;
   e.g. Show me all of the places where this variable is assigned (SET)
* It would be helpful after navigating to a subtype that if "Cntrl-," didn't pop the
   bookmark but just Navigated to previous location.  Often I need to go up
   and down a "subtype" tree and "Cntrl-," erases the trail
* Maybe a little better comments in the macros would help me track down
   issues with SE's parsing of the Ada language
* Need to be able to edit multiple lines in the selective display;  e.g. if selectively
   display all lines with "print", I would like to "Cntrl-B" and select several lines
   and make the same edit to all of the lines at once.
* "Cntrl-]", e.g. Matching Parenthesis, should also support browsing to the
   entries of a case statement  (at least this doesn't work in Ada though it does
   work with if/else constructs.
* In DIFF tool, selecting a line should display both the left and right line in a
   stacked view so that the differences can be seen more easily; e.g. see
   Beyond Compare tool
* Need support for the ADA renames construct; e.g. alias's package names.
   Currently symbol browser doesn't understand STF.MyData where
     "package STF renames StackTableFile;"
* Ability to reorder subroutines/types/variables in the code by dragging the symbol name
  in the DEF window.  Bonus points if I could automagically alphabetically sort the
  subroutines in a file.
* Nice to have:  Incorporate ability to generate ASCII diagrams from a simplistic
   diagram tool.  I know there are open source tools out there but we are not allowed to
   use open source "weeds" in our formal development.

Oh yes, I'd kill for that sometimes ;)
