Interesting to see the Scribe document - I don't think I've seen one

I think that @deffn and @defvrx etc. could be mixed, although
the @def* commands have long been an area where changes could be
made to be more general.  See the TODO file in the git repository.
If we had some way of explicitly specifying the index that a @def*
command would use, then this would solve this problem.
