Alas, no.  I wrote this awhile ago when the site was built w/ ht2html.  My
thing is a simple front-end using Myghty.  As Georg indicated in his
response he has some dynamic stuff in Sphinx which will do this and more.  I
suspect once he goes fully dynamic my little hack won't be necessary any
longer, but I missed it, especially with the new layout where less of the
index is visible without paging down.

I got tired of my modindex URL doing the work necessary to process the index
(and thus being a little slower than just going straight to the index
itself) but not seeing the proper anchors in the file which allowed it to
insert the table and rewrite URLs to allow counting clicks.
