Well I've made a script (actually its a programm, since I'm not to good at 
scripting) to build a hint index without the need for sorting the actual 
hints into directorys

It is far from ready/comfortable but it works.

I've attached a sample html file, which it creates and the template which was 
used to Build it (and of course the source code)

The Template Mecanism is a bit picky, but se for yourself.
