An index might be a different matter, but who includes the document index in a help file?

I've always included an index, separate from full-text search, in every help system I created, from WinHelp to HTML Help to WebWorks Help to JavaHelp, and most recently to help packaged as an Eclipse plug-in. The Eclipse help engine does not include an Index tab, but WebWorks generates the index as a HTML page, so I can link to it from each topic.
