export the list to a text file and then use a db program such as MS Access, Foxpro etc. to import the list and put index on it.
Actually, this whole thing can be done in MS Access alone using Visual Basic. I tried this some time ago but it was too slow. (I
don't know VB well. This might be the problem.) I think you can do the same in other db programs.
I think indexing is an implementation issue and shouldn't be in the standard itself.
