I've reverted my change as I couldn't make it work out right and it is
not clearly right.

I'm starting to think that it should be index entries *before* the @item that
are associated with the @item, not after it.  I feel this may be easier to
implement.  This would leave the Info output unaltered.

There may be a related issue with associating index entries with other
constructs.  For example, a paragraph:

    @cindex paragraph 1
    This is a paragraph.

outputing in HTML as

    <a class="index-entry-id" id="index-paragraph-1"></a>
    <p>This is a paragraph.

Arguably, the following may be better:

    <p id="index-paragraph-1">This is a paragraph.

However, this may be more difficult to achieve than just focusing on
the @table case.
