[Baypiggies] newbie nugget

Maybe there's a fancier way to do that, but that works for me (tested with a
jump to a function).

With vim:
:cd your_project_root
:!ctags -R .
:set tags=tags
Ctrl ] will jump to the "word under the cursor" definition.
I think it's alt-d in emacs.

The problem is updating the tags file. I sometimes add a Makefile rule to a
Makefile that sits in my project root folder. You can probably do something
fancy with an event system (inotify or kqueue ?) to monitor files save and
do the updating automatically.
