SQL Management Studio should trate SQL code to be as usable as C#/VB code in Visual studio.  Example, Right clicking on a stored procedure or function should allow developer to "Goto Definition" so we don't have to hunt around for the code in Object Explorer
Another example, View dependencies should allow developer to view the code for the objects.

Thank you for suggesting Goto Definition feature. The product team is currently planning to expanding SQL App development experience in multiple phases and enabling related features.
Transact SQL Intellisense is a part of the plan in SQL Server 2008. On the road of planning and execution, we will consider GoTo Definition as a feagure candidate and address it in a future release of SQL Server.

This is about Intellisense in general and I would find even more useful its auto-completion feature (sp/udf parameters hints, object names spelling). Yes, it would significantly improve development experience and performance.
