You'd likely have to use macros (one for each index) and have a filters
or derived backends sort things out.  Getting to something as elaborate
as the various index packages would take some time, though.

If you've organized the LaTeX maybe by using your own style file, then
you could still use LaTeX as the backend and keep the actual editing in

I guess here's your point to stick with LaTeX: there's a good number of

this might be a hard sell in some places (especially those that want
book manuscripts in Word, shudder).
