Well, our Wiki contains a page with some general information regarding
which functionality may be found in which unit - see
http://wiki.freepascal.org/Unit_categorization. It isn't complete, but it
should serve for basic orientation for beginners. Admittedly, this isn't
equal to what you were asking for; I don't think that such an index
exists, although I can imagine that generating it shouldn't be difficult.
