I've now made some headway here, and it basically works now for many of
the "misc" manuals.  The remaining problem is that there's not a
standardised way to name the indices (eww has "lisp function index"
instead of "function index", for instance), so I think I have to extend
info-look with a way to get all the index nodes or something.

Or rename the index nodes in the manuals to all follow the same naming
