If you have to deliver it in an Index, no, I don't think there is.
If you have the freedom to generate the other kind of front/rear

better solution for your readers and easier to implement.
You could try generating a list of functions and then integrating /
alphabetizing it into the existing Index. Might be something a
framescript could do...
