The wrapper generator does not use the "indexing" keyword at all as it emits only comments.
Things are different in the high level stratum of the wrappers which are written by a wetware and not by a software: it's written by people.
A definitive solution could be to entirely avoid the usage of the indexing keyword, keeping all the informations in comments.

I would also add that most of the time I would like to put HTML code in the comments, as I often dream to turn Eiffel into a Literate Programming language. But that's another story....

I don't care about such naming. "note" is as good as "indexing" - for a first time implementation it may be a bit better to have "note", but as there already is eiffel code using "indexing" it's a bit worse to have "note". As "note" is the ECMA notation, I'd vote for this.

  • add support for "note" in the compiler
  • add "note" it in check assertions as defined in ECMA 8.9.17
  • add note clauses in our libs
  • replace "indexing" by "note" in the wrapper generator
  • add handling of "note" in eiffeldoc
