I've just looked at Texinfo 4.8 manual (the latest release 4.9 only
differs about texi2dvi, texinfo.tex and some bugfixes), and found no way
to format an index as Juergen suggested.

It's already in Texinfo TODO file, which is quite big [1] -- Texinfo
needs a lot of C hackers to tackle all TODO items :-|  We can always try
to ask them to raise the priority for implementing this particular
feature.  (I'm suscribed to bug-texinfo, which discusses Texinfo bugs,
development and feature requests.)

FWIW 4.9 was released on June 29, and the latest beta is 4.9.92, so they
might add it before 4.11... (or before 5.1 in case they decide to
release 5.0 instead of 4.10)
