Gutter marks on java methods that are EL action handlers?

Would this be feasible at all?

It would be helpful if I could directly see in the java editor that a method is called from EL (action handler or value change event listener).
Does IDEA have a "quick reference" that is fast enough to do this?
Clicking on the little EL icon could take me to the calling EL expression or popup a list of calling places (list of file and probably tag and line #).

Is there a chance to implement this for Diana?

Anybody here who would cast a vote if I create a Jira issue?

If it can be done fast enough (through some indexing maybe), I would definitely like it and I would vote for it.

Stephen,

Doesn't Ctrl-Alt-F7 provide most of this?

Huh? And I am supposed to invoke that on each and every method in a
class to figure out which methods are EL action handlers?

That is like saying you don't need the override icons in the gutter, because
there's the ctrl-alt-b shortcut.

I inherited a project where no consistent naming declaration is used
and lots of code became superfluous over time.
Being able to quickly see which methods of a class are backing methods for
a JSF page would help me a lot.
