I'll try building the Kawa manual (which has an index) this way.
It's a bigger manual, and there may be some issues.

Also, are there plans to implement more keyboard commands?  For
example, 'g' could be very useful, especially in large manuals.

No immediate plans, but I expect we would add more commands based
on requests.   The 'g' commands some conceptual complications, like
what is a "node name", given that raw node names don't appear in
the manual.  Perhaps we should search for both section names and
node names. The implementation while probably not very complicated
is also not something you'd do in an hour or so.

I probably won't implement the 'g' command myself, at least
not in the near future (or before the hoped-for texinfo release).
