It is not minor issue, IMHO, if code navigation is difficult and complicated to use, it is not worth using. I still don't see how it is more powerfull then exisiting navigation. Documents navigation sounds interesting, but only as additional feature, not as replace of existing code navigation.

Here is list of my critical requirements for IDE. If IDE don't have even one of them I think it is not good. Currently Geany match all of them, thanks a lot to devs and contributors. I hope Geany will stay this way in future. 

1) should be fast (if you only 2 times faster then eclipse you are too slow to be usefull)
2) code highlight
3) code navigation
4) bookmarks
5) ability to run make, parse compiler output
6) ability to run scripts (.sh,  .py and others)
7) ability to run compiled program
8) ability to search in directory
