Yes, that's what I meant. What you get, looking at, is ...

Looking at 'Procedure Index', for example not really knowing what your looking 
but presumably starting with letter 's', as a 'pure' scheme programmer, reaching
scm-xxx, you'll have to hit more or less 33 times page down [depending on your
display and browser size obviously] to 'continue' with other 'scheme' indice
