#24 Allow Identifier Searches to be Restricted to Declarations


This is particularly useful for large code bases where the number of references completely swamps the number of declarations. Also OpenGrok* supports this.

Suggested implementation: add tickboxs to the Ident HTML page to allow the user to specify whether they wish to search for declarations, references or both (defaulting to both).

    This feature will ship with 0.9.10 release.
    It will be based on a idea of Martin Wilck.
    I feel however that looking for references only will not give a substantial improvement since definition are less numerous than references.
    Default will be defined through a personal preference parameter in lxr.conf.
