OK, I understand your opinion now.

Continuing with philosophical discussion, what about multiple spaces
in source?  They are equal to only one in TeX, so perhaps makeinfo
could condese them too.

And what about multiple spaces an the end of a sentence?  TeX has its
own way to handle this (spacefactor).  Should makeinfo have similar
intelligent algorithm?

If yes, shouldn't we implement @frenchspacing in makeinfo?
(Currently, users are happy, as their style of writing texinfo
sources gets copied to info files.)
