[pdftex] Combined index

I have a set of large documents, each of which are indexed.
The documents reference each other using the hyperref package.

I'd like to create an introductory document and compile a combined index
linking to the other documents. Is it possible to get \hyperpage
links to open an external document?

The nearest I've got is to sed the idx files and replace hyperpage with
hyperref to the front page of the appropriate document. I suspect I may be
able to do something with makeindex arguments, but I'm not sure where to

Any suggestions? Anybody done anything like this?
