Navigate to implementation of an item at the caret.

This type of navigation lets you jump from a base type or member to any of its end implementations skipping the intermediate steps in the inheritance chain. For example, suppose that class MyClass inherits abstract class MyAbstractClass, which, in its turn, implements interface MyOriginalInterface. Choosing Go to Implementation when the caret is positioned at MyOriginalInterface takes you directly to the declaration of MyClass.
