- download the texinfo source code.  It's in C.
- download the texi2html source code.  It's in perl.
- implement your favorite sorting routine as an optional feature
  in both those projects.  Alternately, add hooks to those
  projects so that users can specify their own sorting routines in
  some language.
- wait 1 year for new releases to come out in those projects
- get the sorting you want in those indexes.

As I said in
it's pretty much beyond our control, and IMO totally not worth the
effort involved.
