[OS X TeX] showidx term in a footnote.

I use showidx not just for me to check if and where a term has been 
defined but mostly because I find it helps students who, before they 
have assimilated a new term, need frequently to go back a few pages to 
where the term is explained/defined but are deterred by having to use 
the index.

Occasionally, I need to define a term that is not crucial to the body 
and thus appears only in a footnote.

But, while the term does appear in the index, showidx does not show it 
in the margin.

Is there anything I can do about it?

It is of course not really important since, as the argument is not 
crucial in the first place, such terms will never appear in the body but 
only, possibly, in further footnotes that, in fact, are mostly 
"Inflammatory Notes for the Mortification of Educologists and the 
Vindication of ``Just Plain Folks".

Grateful regards
