They don't look too bad to me... a bit far to the right, perhaps, but
not too bad.  Perhaps some lines in that table would help, or
alternating grey/white background for the rows?

If anyone knows how to do this, then please go ahead.  I don't think
it's urgent for the release though - by default the collapsible sections
are now expanded, and anyway the right way to use the contents page is
to middle-click on the module name in Firefox ;-)
