Yeah I haven't seen anything like that either, though perhaps vim has  
something like that.

In TextMate you could theoretically do the following, though it  
requires altering the grammar. You could basically alter the color  
theme, so that the \index{...} part has the same foreground as the  
background, and hence becomes invisible. It would still take up space  
though, and you need to change the grammar to accomplish that since  
we don't match \index{...} separately from other commands (though  
come to think of it we probably should, we could do some interesting  
things with it perhaps). If this "invisibility" would be helpful to  
you, I can see about changing the LaTeX grammar file to match these  
functions, it should be very easy to do.

I can think of some other ways of accomplishing what you want by  
using other secondary files and some tiny scripts, but most of my  
ideas are very fragile, so if you are planning to edit the resulting  
text instead of just looking at it, I would not advice any of these  
ideas (hence I am not even mentioning them).
