And tm_workspace_add_object sets the parent to be the whole workspace!

Because of item 2) above I think this will reparse all open files.

The question is can problems be introduced by not reparsing things, eg
if we are editing a .h file, can that affect the symbols of the .c
files that include it ... probably possible AFAICT.

Is there some easy way of triggering re-parsing of dependencies when
the sidebar is about to swap to a different file?  That way real-time
update only needs to do the one file being edited, but no artifacts
are introduced due to inconsistencies between when tags were parsed.
