Best would probably be something that generates automatically from the
manual or the m4 source files, so that keeping it up to date doesn't
involve remembering another location.  Hmm, the indices like
are probably only a bit short (and making their entries a lot longer
looks a bit ugly in the info output).  But either improving them, or
adding another texinfo index with more detail, could be a possibility.

As to the alternative, tests/ already uses tests/
to extract a good portion of the public macros.  You could use that as
a starting point.
