Can cscope  work with any language besides C and C++?  My understanding
is that refactoring in eclipse is usually implemented (by the plugin)
for every language that you can use eclipse for.  Python, PHP, Java, C/C
++, etc.

cscope is one of those rare gems left to us by SCO.

Dr. Scott Woodfield in the BYU CS dept is one person who will blow
anyone out of the water using vim.  Watching what he can do with vim
amazes me.  Honestly, eclipse would just slow him down (although he
might be using eclipse for nice build-tool integration these days; I
don't know).
