Whatever the buttons link to, they should be consistant across pages.  In my
view "Index" would always point to the index of the current directory - on
pages like manual/index.html, manual/mod/index.html and manual/misc/index.html
it's the same page of course.  Whereas, "Home" would always point to the top
level of the manual - a redundancy which means the "Home" button is only on
pages in /mod and /misc.  

Not that this is a clean set of semantics - I totally agree they aren't, and
would much rather see a "top" button on all pages, and perhaps "modules"
"directives", "FAQ's" and a few others as standard buttons on all or most
pages.  Feel free to propose a new set of semantics which can be consistantly
applied across pages.  

But no matter what is decided, it makes sense to me to have the top-level page
pulling in the same toolbar as other documents at that directory level, and
that's why I changed it to footer.
