Is that possible, given that reading the Scheme file may require custom syntax?

As a subcase, if a record type is defined, do you list all the record
getter and setter procs (e.g. post-macro-expansion) or just the
define-record (pre-expansion)?

At least define-record is standard syntax; if an egg uses custom
syntax, it may be impossible to tell whether there are any definitions
at all; or worse, it may contain numerous internal definitions that
should not be exposed in an index.

Just a thought,
