That is reasonable.  As I stated in my original email for this patch, I
did consider this and my opinion is that this patch shouldn't really slow
down somebody looking for a specific module (by name) by more that a
couple seconds.  (Worst case scenario: hit the alt/ctrl-f in netscape and
type your module name.)  However, if others disagree, I would still
suggest making this version the default "modules" page because it is in
the structure that is most useful for a first-time user of the docs.  The
alphabetic index could then be linked to this page just as the alphabetic
list of directives is. The "expert" users that would be looking for the
alphabetic index would be expert enough to be able to make the extra click
to find it.
