I see the same, but I don't understand why that is a problem.  The
function and the variable are described one after the other, and 'i'
puts you on the first of them with the second clearly visible below.
How is that a problem?  And how is it worse than having 2 identical
index entries instead, which point each one to a place several lines
apart?
