The "Index" namespace is probably not as necessary
as the "Page" namespace; if wikisource was using only
djvu or pdf files, it would indeed be possible to go away
with it, and to use the "File:" page for that purpose.
However, there are still lots of projects that do not use
multipage file formats ; we want to keep backward compatibility.
On it.source we have a brief list of Index: pages using jpg images. We are
converting them to djvu, the list isn't long but... the main list of "things
to do" is very long... perhaps a converting tool exists? :-(
And, keeping the opportunity for a banal question: how can I download back
by bot a list of jpgs? I tried pywikipedia scripts coupled with general
download pythons scripts but I found that download scripts work on normal
websites, but don't work on Commons (I only got a small piece of the jpg
file, approx 1 kby).
