OK, I found it. You can put all see and seealso index records in a separate
file. For instance, I put it in ./seealso.inc. So ./seealso.inc has lots
records like this:

\index{Joneses|see{keeping up with the Joneses}}

Then, in the document preamble, I place the following line:

\input{./seealso.inc}

That does the trick, and I don't have to do any ERT maneuvers.
