The cheatsheet is not written in docbook and I'm not sure how one can 
include a raw pdf. Any pointers would be useful.

I find indexes useful for printed books but not PDFs. The searching 
capabilities work much better for me. That said we can generate an 
index, however I doubts its as simple as a generation switch. How will 
it know what to include in an index? More likely the indexes will have 
to be marked up or written from scratch. Again if there are automated 
ways of doing this I'd like to hear about them.

I don't follow. The pdf already has a TOC which is the same as the pdf 
bookmarks. Do you mean something else?

kind regards
