I'll get to this eventually. I usually fix this stuff up at work.

Since MATLAB doesn't conform to the C like mechanisms, getting this
sort of thing to work requires overloading all the functions that are
too C centric. For example, `semanticdb-find-tag-by-name' calls
something that builds a `path'. That semanticdb-find-translate-path
should be overridden to include the local file, anything in private
with the specified name, and anything on the MATLAB path with the
specified name. (Find-translate-path builds a map of DB tables to
search, and is different from a what might be considered an include
A second thing is to write a simple EDE project for MATLAB that knows
how to look at a MATLAB install, and extract the file path. EDE needs
some sort of high speed `locate' function which would then be used for
Rooting out all these features wouldn't be too hard, but would be

Either is ok. Those on the other list might not be interested in
detailed development discussion, but would be interested in
intermediate announcements of enhancements.
