[WISHLIST] Module documentation table of contents

Perhaps my greatest annoyance with the matplotlib HTML documentation is
the simply absurd length of some of the module pages. For instance, the
reference for the axes module[1] amounts to more than 150 printed pages
(for lack of a better measure).

Despite this length, there is no table of contents summarizing the
methods in the module. Due to this I (and no doubt others) have spent
innumerable hours wandering aimlessly looking for the function whose
name I can't quite remember. Is there some way to get sphinx to produce
a table of contents on each page produced? The current layout makes the
HTML documentation completely unapproachable without Google.
