Obviously an 'advanced' feature but it'd be handy at times. I also like aspects of their structure which could be applied here. I like the separation of methods overridden by a given class in the C++ docs, though people do admittedly regularly miss the 'all members' links in the Qt docs. Also separation of static methods. You already have the signals separate. You have the 'inherits' section, the 'inherited by' section is nice for navigating the opposite direction.

There's quite a lot of useful information that isn't currently shown - eg. whether a C++ method is virtual and/or protected. Also any object ownership changes. The problem is how to represent these clearly and concisely. It's further complicated by the fact that most method arguments don't have names.
