I'm coming round to the idea that if we wanted such a table of
contents, we'd generate it on the page when building the docs rather
than running some ECMAScript.  I've already got a basic contents thing
showing on my version of the docs (see
http://pgweb.darkixion.com:8081/docs/9.0/static/functions-xml.html ),
but I'm not happy with it.  It looks out of place and there doesn't
seem to be any appropriate place to put the link to show it.

So rather than attempting to do this, do you think we should produce a
table of contents on pages containing 3rd and 4th-level chapter
headings?  This would be in the same style as we currently have for
chapter introductions:
http://pgweb.darkixion.com:8081/docs/9.0/static/typeconv.html with the
only difference being that it would show the 3rd and 4th levels as
opposed to the 2nd and 3rd levels currently on chapter start pages.
