And I am using Eclipse as my IDE, which also has flixible navigation 
features to jump around in the code. I haven't used Qtcreator, so I 
can't compare. Another thing I like about Eclipse is its integration 
with various scm systems (via plugins), like git, svn,...

It also comes with a pretty good python mode. It doesn't work well on 
guile code though. I edit the GnuCash guile code in kate, which at least 
has decent syntax highlighting.
