I was hoping Christoph could step forward at some point answer these
kinds of questions, but my sense of it, having been part of the creation
but not the layout, was that this was a rather brute force effort on
Christoph's part - just manually done. I was the initiator of the index,
which was really just a list of words, that got appended as we went.
