You are completely right Ed, it is used (almost) exclusively for indexing.
However from what I understand from it it does cut up kanji by individual
parts, which at least partially comes in line with what you were looking for.
At least it might provide ideas to work from.
For my own project at http://www.rangaku.org/ I've been looking at ways for
allowing users to construct their kanji based on parts in order to get
dictionary results. I guess my usage falls in between SKIP and your idea/goal.
It definitely is something I am personally interested in, though, and would
love to help work on.
