Semantic provides tag lists, and can provide tags for what is under
point. A tag has a name, data type, list of class members (for
classes) or argument lists (functions.) Looking at the above
provided link, this is similar to what many functions in that .emacs

The JDE has a similar function that uses semantic to do some of the work.
I think the code is basically:
1) find all the includes
2) transform them (sort, insert, expand, etc)
3) delete the found tags
4) insert new code from the tags

I could, but there is no infrastructure for it.

semantic can parse Makefiles. I don't know how that relates to q or
Once something is parsed, it is easy to delete, move, and transform
the tags in the buffer.
