I think, in my role as the ECB-maintainer i can bring some light into the
darkness ;-)

Not only a speedbar-like mechanism - it is the speedbar mechanism. In fact,
ECB uses the original speedbar-mechanism for displaying file-contents of
file-types which can not being parsed by semantic but by imenu and/or etags.
So, if speedbar can parse the file-type, ECB will be autom. able too!

Yes, i know...this was the reason i have posted an announcement in the
ECB-mailing list about the new feature in the CVS...people should beta-test
this so i can make this feature stable for next production-version of ECB.
Currently I'm quite busy but i hope to find the time in the near future to fix
currently existing bugs in this new feature.

And for this some bug-reports from users would be really helpful ;-)

But parsing- and displaying stuff of this new feature works already well
(other opinions are appreciated!), the only thing i have to fix is the
integration into ECB concerning when to reparse/update the display, flushing
the cache...should not be too hard!

Yes, thanks to Phil for this suggestion!
