That's a cool index! I'd not looked at this version before, I think.
For the Python documentation, I split indexes up like this, but I use
a whole pile of external index-processing scripts written for the
purpose, and a l2hinit.perl that overrides the index-insertion code to
call the external scripts. The result looks like this:
using a two-column split layout, or like this:
using a four-column unsplit layout.
The scripts I use aren't well documented at this time, but are freely
available (including the l2hinit.perl I use) as part of the "latex"
flavor of the Python documentation:
I'm always happy to answer questions about what I've done.
