Hello Mark,

While you are at the manual, may I point to some suggestion I made about the
structure and contents of the indexes which still is, IMHO, valid today. 
[wanted to
actually really point the email in guile-devel archive but but it didn't let me 
before october 2009 ...]

I didn't and still don't have [yet] the skill to fluently and bug freely 
large doc written in texinfo, otherwise I would have done it.

I'm sorry, that's complete nonsense, as we already have the
procedure/variable/type separation.

So in fact now I completely agree with what you've suggested.
