I didn't include the subcommands on purpose.  The reason is that it is 
not useful to have several index entries that all begin with the same 
string and point to the same page in the manual.  That is why I only 
indexed "info dos".

So I guess my assertion about ``every command'' should have been 
qualified by this exception.  Sorry for confusion.

Yes.  That is how all "set ..." commands are indexed in the manual,

Sorry, I don't understand: the command is "set shell", not "set w32 shell", 
right?  If so, you should have "@kindex set shell".

Is what possible?
