Thanks indeed, John.
I tried this and encountered a very strange behavior: with just a few
dummy lines, nothing happens, with more I get an extra *blank* page
in the index, but the wanted lines never appear.
Maybe part of the problem in my case is that the 
break occurs at a \indexspace in the .ind file?
With all best wishes,
