Interesting idea!  The 'canonical' exuberant ctags implementation does
not do a fantastic job, especially if not using modules.  You get
"test.asserteq' as the function name, not just plain asserteq, and it
does not know that local functions are special and tag them as having
file scope (as it would do with a static C function).

LDoc is well-positioned to do the job, because it's already doing the
basic parsing.
