Good point, I'll put the limitations and TODO stuff into the package

That was a conscious decision, though now that I think about it I
could assume they're unexported and use vim's static tags for those
definitions.  I don't know about the most common case, but I almost
always have signatures on top level definitions, and I don't really
feel like I need tags for where or let-bound definitions.

Oops, that was an oversight.  Should be easy enough to fix.
