Yep, I use it in emacs. Most of the time the first hit will get you
where you want to go (you can probably generate a "cleaner" TAGS file
by telling etags to ignore certain directories.) As for the `C-u M-.'
shortcut, the usual emacs keyboard notes apply: it helps to remap your
capslock-key as a ctrl key, and if that's still uncomfortable,
(global-set-key) can be used to set a different key.

If you need to blow through a whole bunch of TAGS hits, you can also
use the repeat command, so `M-.' to find first hit, `C-u M-.' to move
to second, then `C-x z' to move to third, then just keep pressing `z'
to move to next entry.
