It seems to be in its very early stages now. I can barely navigate the
2.4.31 source and it doesn't offer anything like the functionality of
lxr. But if you want to, perhaps it's worthwhile developing it further
and releasing it.

Your README file suggests that LXR fails because it requires a
webserver. Personally, I've never seen that to be an issue and find it
very very useful indeed (although it has limitations and doesn't
always index every symbol I would want to lookup), especially with
coywolf keeping an up-to-date lxr for 2.6. Mel Gorman used it for his
ULVMM book and I'm sure others are using LXR extensively - so it might
be worth extending that.

I'd love it if vendors would actually index their kernels with LXR.
