If we're going to spend time generating an index it's important that
we produce the right kind of index, or we've just wasted that effort.
A directory that the user has to page through isn't good enough - look
at `info' for an example :-).
So, we need to attach keywords to things. I think that a little
thought will suffice, provided that (a) most of the keywords are
decided on by a smallish number of people and that (b) there is a way
to produce a list of the keywords used.
