In reality, I hardly ever have to _find_ a particular method. I want to 
_delete_ whole blocks of code, whatever is in them. What is important is the 
number of semantic connections of other parts of a code into the block I want 
to delete. For member function definitions, there are no such connections 
because the declarations are still there.

Well, fact is: there is no such tool. People have tried to play around with 
Delta, but it turns out that the fastest and most efficient method is still 
brute human force. Nobody seems to know how to write a tool like you suggest.
