The code explorer has just starting to get interesting.
I don't think it will become a quick search tool. More a gui for  
exploring and refactoring.

The code explorer does not eat much memory as it only shows the  
content of one unit.
I plan more tools like the code browser - that scans whole source  
trees and need two or three hundred megabytes. But these tools will  
not be invoked by default and they share the same memory.
