They're extra effort to use. You have to maintain the ctags file when
you make changes. ctags has its uses but I tend to work with both
depending on what I'm doing. If I'm not in an editor (i.e. using grep)
then ctags isn't very usefull. Finding all the free_* functions for
example isn't so easy with ctags.
