OK, here's a tentative solution. I'll use a special \myindex command, so
we don't mess with the normal \index.

\makeatletter
\def\myindex#1{%
\immediate\write\@indexfile{%
\noexpand\indexentry{#1}{\arabic{Page}}}%
}
\makeatother

Now \myindex{whatever} will add whatever'' to the index, but with page
number Page.

There are more bells and whistles to the real \index command, but I'm no
LaTeX user; the solution here should probably work in most cases, though.

Best,
Paul
