It automatically adds a \ to every @funindex item.

Yes, that's what I said in... oh wait, that was a private email to
Trevor.  Yes, that's a problem, which is why I abanadoned this

I agree, but see these:

We had a clear discussion about this issue at near the end of GDP,
and it was decided to use *both* foo and \foo.  I'm not eager to
re-open the matter only one year after that decision, even if I
think it was the wrong decision.  :|

(also, as somebody who never ever uses the index, I'm tempted to
disregard my opinion on the matter -- leaving the matter even more
swayed towards having blah and \blah.)
