Although people *have* written sorting algorithms in TeX, so I wonder  
why no-one's implemented an in-TeX indexing thing. Computers are fast  
enough these days, and it would mean no extra recompilations to  
include the index in the document. It's surely no harder than the  
tricks LaTeX and ConTeXt get up to to perform their other tasks :)
