really easy, I found. Just invoke ctags twice, as follows:
!"C:/Documents and Settings/ben/ctags58_win32/ctags.exe" --extra=+f --fields=+SK-k --totals -B %
!"C:/Documents and Settings/ben/ctags58_win32/ctags.exe" --extra=+f --fields=+SK-k --totals --c-kinds=p -a %
Now I can access both the prototype and the function definition regardless
of how similar the location pattern!
