Issue #755 resolved

New index option

The index options are really good for general use but a new "hierarchic" option would be a really nice ehancement.

For exemple,

{{{ .. index:: pair: Berlin; church }}}

creates two index entries: Berlin, church and church, Berlin. The entries are both correct.

When you use the index with personnes, the two index entries are not interesting. For example: pair: Brandl; Georg. Brandl, Georg is OK but not Georg, Brandl.

I could use: single: Brandl Georg. A nice solution if there is only one Brandl (the one!) in my documentation.

The killing index feature is a primary and secondary (and more?) index for Sphinx, like http://docbook.org/tdg51/en/html/ch02.html#makeindex or LaTeX.

So:

{{{ .. index:: hierarchic: Brandl; Georg hierarchic: Brandl; Birkefeld }}}

creates:

{{{ Brandl Birkenfeld Georg }}}

Just an idea :-)
