I've been using the excellent ArcCatalog X-Ray for working with designing a geodatabase.

Is there a way to create attribute indexes in X-Ray? The geodatabase XML schema does contain an element, but I can't find any mechanism or guidance if X-Ray can handle indexes.

After digging into the code of X-Ray, it seems they use a simplified version of the geodatabase schema in the XML. The element is missing, so at the moment, there is no support for indexes that I can see.
