Package tide2idx/WXTide32 (wx makes it sound like it uses wxWidgets,
which is cross-platform) and have the xtide data source packages build
an IDX file using the tide2idx package you have produced. These can go
into either the xtide-data/xtide-data-nonfree packages or into new
xtide-data-idx/xtide-data-nonfree-idx packages, depending on the size
and any other requirements.
