Well. It was about the only thing I could afford, as far as my skills
are concerned...
You're completely right, obviously.

Such a thing would most probably be the right thing; possibly it would
be quite useful to many, as a handy navigation tool for sites in
But coding it is *far* beyond my own ability.
As a matter of facts, I'm currently using toggledictindex[1] which has
an issue: it does not work as you place it into the header part of the
skin. For this reason (and for it's much nicer and flexible)
LinkCSSToolTip recipe would really be a step ahead. It's smooth.

I've read and re-read that page.
On one hand it looks interesting, as it seems to solve the long
processing time issues.
On the other hand I cannot yet figure it out: it is all quite
technical, and I really did not understand how things would work.
