Another thought occured to me as I was drifting off to sleep
last night, one that's basically a show stopper.

If two, indentical index terms occur on the same page, any code
that generates an index will be bound to produce the page number

  foo, 3, 5, 5, 8

There's no way for the DSSSL code to know that both references
occur on the same page.

So, perhaps a better solution would be to hack, er, adjust ;-),
the RTF back end to be able to output the index terms in RTF.
The same adjustment could be made for the TeX back end.

Then the formating engine could actually produce the index.
