Just my 2 centimes: I can wholeheartedly recommend it and I ``don't
code without it'' :-).

With a little makefile hacking it can support CSL-style separate
compilation easily.  If somebody is fluent in the Icon language,
he/she should be able to adapt the automatic cross referencer for SML
to CSL without much trouble (I couldn't find free docs for Icon, so I
punted on that).

Marking the definitions by hand isn't too inconvenient either and
gives you more fine grained control (in case do not want to cross
reference everything).  References are handled automatically anyway.
