Sigh! Isn't that always the case? :-(.

My real problem is that I don't know how to generate the multiple 
indexes that I need if I use org mode. Everything else is easy. Any 
potential solution that I see involves adding lots more markup, but if I 
do that I might as well stick with LaTeX.

At least a lot of simple editors (the software) are LaTeX aware, so my 
editor (the human being) should be able to handle it.

Thanks again for your thoughts.
