[issue10299] Add index with links section for built-in functions

New submission from nestor <nestornissen at gmail.com>:

The built-in function page (http://docs.python.org/dev/py3k/library/functions.html) is pretty long. Each function has an anchor but unlike the built-in types section there is no quick way to get an overview or jump to a specific function (like open or print) short of scrolling through 22 pages. It would be nice to have an index of all built-in functions linked to the specific entry on the built-in functions page. This could be either somehow added to the index page (http://docs.python.org/dev/py3k/library/index.html) or to the top of the built-in functions page itself. For efficient use of real-estate multiple function names could be on one single line alphabetically sorted and separated by spaces.
