Hi Graham,

    allows an index to be used twice?  (first time for printing, second
    time for merging into cp)

Sorry to say that Texinfo doesn't support this.  It's never come up
before, the theory being that if you have a separate index for commands
(or whatever), then duplicating them all in the general index is not

Ok, thanks for clarifying.

However, I guess I can understand the idea of wanting readers to be able to see all commands in an index by themselves, but also find them in the
general index.  Is that the goal?

Yes. We've had a few requests for a command index, but I'm not comfortable removing them from the general index.

Another possible workaround is to duplicate every @findex with @vindex (or whatever), ie
@findex \relative
@vindex \relative

@syncodeindex fn cp
@printindex vr

One of those entries can be used for the command index, and another for the general index. (I'm just mentioning this in case somebody else searches google or the mailist archives)
