Another issue just came up on bison-patches: Collapsing:

| doc/bison.texinfo:@deffn {Macro} YYERROR;
| doc/bison.texinfo:@deffn {Statement} {return YYERROR;}
| doc/bison.texinfo:@deffn {Macro} YYERROR

to one YYERROR index entry
So in this case, not only the sort key would have to be
changeable, but also the index entry itself.

  Do you see a consistent syntax to incorporate such a fea-
ture (or another solution to the problem)?
